Honey & Tarragon Glazed Chicken

This was a blast from the past! I use to make this dish in college... I changed a couple things, and whola... Paleo! :-)
This is an easy and tasty meal to make... it won't take up a lot of time (but it will seem like you did). :-)

6 chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, trimmed of fat, and slightly pounded
3 T organic, raw, unfiltered honey
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
3 tsp. paprika
3 T lemon juice
2 T fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
2 T olive oil
pinch sea salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. After trimming and "slightly pounding" chicken breasts, place in a baking dish. Combine glaze ingredients, and brush both sides of chicken breasts generously with glaze. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn chicken breasts over and brush other side with more glaze. Cook for another 10 minutes. Brush with more glaze, and bake for 5 more minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 175 degrees.

I served this with broccoli and salad.
Zone blocks for 3oz serving of chicken is approximately: 2F, 3P, 1 C ... so, add avocado or slivered almonds to your salad for some more good fats! With the additional broccoli and salad, you're looking at a pretty balanced 3 block meal! Hope you enjoy!

** Don't forget!!! Mark your calendar!!! Paleo-Zone Challenge, Take II starting March 1st!
