Paleo Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts

I've been taking boxed up dinner to Ger and Cassie at the box lately since Ger didn't want to eat after 7 pm and he's not home by then.  This is his last week with me, so if people think I am spoiling him by "Feeding Ger Sasser" AND delivering his dinner to the box, then so be it.   I want to send Ger and Cassie out well-fed - they have so many details to take care of right now, it's the least I can do!

Have I shared with you all that he will be flying out on Sunday (the day after his wedding) to play for the NPGL's San Francisco Fire?  Thank you for the proud mom moment.
Now, on to the recipe:

I rubbed coconut oil on a 9 x 12 glass baking dish.

I mixed the following ingredients in a small bowl:

1/4 cup organic brown mustard
1/4 cup honey
2 TBPS melted coconut oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp basil
2 tsp smoked sea salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

I placed 5-6 chicken breasts in the baking dish and poured the honey mustard mixture on top. I made sure all of the chicken was coated, using a silicone brush.

I baked the chicken in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes.  (You might want to cut into the thickest part of the biggest chicken breast to make sure it is cooked through.)

This is how the boxed dinners looked. The chicken was delicious with zucchini and yellow squash cooked in a skillet with coconut oil and    Bacon Wrapped Pineapple:
