Honey Dijon Chicken with Bacon and Cheddar

My sweet husband made this for dinner on Mother's Day. It was super yummy and he also made spinach salad and rolls to go along with it. Thanks Babe!!:)

Honey Dijon Chicken with Bacon and Cheddar

4-6 chicken breasts
1/2 cup coarse grain mustard
1/2 cup honey
juice from half a lemon (about 2 teaspoons)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8-12 pieces bacon
shredded cheddar cheese

Combine mustard, honey, lemon juice, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

Pound the chicken breats flat and let marinate in the honey/mustard mixture for 3 hours.

Heat a couple tablespoons of canola oil in a skillet. Fry chicken in oil till browned on both sides. Transfer chicken to a 9x13 baking pan or cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until chicken is done all the way through. Place 2 pieces of bacon on each breast and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Return to oven and let cheese melt a little, a couple minutes.
