Honey-Mustard Chicken Tenders with Couscous

Share

This Honey-Mustard Chicken Tenders with Couscous recipe is one of my favorite recipes when I am trying to be healthy. The combination cuts the calories but none of the taste. To steam the carrots, simply bring an inch of water to a boil in a saucepan and pop them in a steamer basket fitted over the pot.

Coat chicken tenders with a mixture of honey mustard, oil, and salt. Bake the chicken tenders in the oven until cooked through. Steam carrots until just softened. Drain the water and return the cooked carrots to the empty pot. Add orange juice, butter, honey mustard, and salt and cook, stirring often, until the orange juice mixture coats the carrots. Serve the tenders with the carrots, sauce, and couscous and garnished with parsley.
