Honey Mustard Chicken with Pine Nuts & Goat's Cheese Recipe

Stocking up on the bare basics is a must if you love to cook a lot. Dried pasta, rice, tinned plum tomatoes, vegetable/chicken/fish stock, anchovies, oil. nuts and dried herbs to name a few examples are essentials that every kitchen should have.

It's only the middle of the week and already down to basic ingredients in the fridge.  So keeping it simple and based on the fact that I had chicken breast, rocket leaves, and goats cheese, I was glad I came across this recipe.  It asked for the above three ingredients along with only a few kitchen pantry essentials. This really makes a great light supper with a short ingredients list, short preparation, and short cook time.
