    Bump! just a question - what is Mrs Dash? Is it some sort of spice? Can you get it in the UK? Thanks!

    Honey - mustard glazed chicken:
    1/2 cup honey
    1/3 cup of wholegrain mustard
    1 clove of garlic
    500 grams mini chicken fillets
    salt & pepper

    Season the chickenwith salt and pepper. Add crushed garlic, mix well. Cover with honey and mustard, mix well, place on a baking tray and bake on high heat for 15 mins turning over one. Serve with your choice of vegetables.

    Edited for spelling
  • Bump...thanks for starting this!

    Mrs. Dash is brand of mixed of spices. It comes in different flavors, regular, chicken, chile lime... all of them salt-free. I use it all the time, beats having to sort through, find and select my own spices. I'm a lazy cook. I have no idea if you can get it in the UK. I'm guessing, no if you haven't heard of it.

  • Mrs. Dash is a no salt spice here in the US. We find it here in the spice section. I've never been to the UK, so I don't know if you have it, but that's where you'd find it
