What’s the simplest, yet most-satisfying dinner you can whip up on the fly? You guessed it: chicken. Though the kid in you may instinctively dream up the days of chicken fingers, this recipe puts a twist on tradition. Instead of a basket of fried tenders with a side of honey-mustard, you’ll bake up a juicy main course with a sweet-and-tangy marinade. Raw agave nectar subs in for honey to create a flavor so spot-on, you’d wish Mom would’ve thought of this years ago.

Agave-Dijon Mustard Chicken


1 Tbsp. agave
2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  2. In a small bowl, stir together agave, almond milk and Dijon mustard.
