Vito's Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken

I tweaked a recipe that I found online, and it turned out amazing.  The whole family raved.  I'm sure you could use any Italian dressing, but I noted the brand I used in case it was the magic ingredient!

5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Vito Marcello's Creamy Italian dressing -- use about 1 cup
garlic powder
1 packet Chinese mustard (carry-out kind)
pepper--I sprinkled it on generously till the chicken looks kind of "blackened"

Spray a  13x9 baking dish and arrange chicken in it. Pour generous amount of dressing over meat. Sprinkle garlic powder over all. Drizzle a zigzag pattern  of honey next over each piece. Dot with mustard. Sprikle a little salt over all of it. Spread the glaze evenly.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes and basting. Chicken is done when its internal temperature reached 165 degrees.  It should be slightly crisp and dark golden brown,  and shiny with glaze.

This dish is not only delish, but pretty, too. Glazed and golden brown chicken is hard to beat!

Do you serve it over rice? or does it just stand alone? I'm looking for an easy but elegant dinner for the Alpha discussion group leaders who are coming for dinner on Tuesday. We were going to order from a restaurant down the street, but I'd rather make it myself. Do you think this is the kind of meal that satisfies a broad variety of tastebuds?

This sounds awesome. My kids will all be home for Christmas, and this is the kind of recipe they & I will enjoy.
