This recipe melds sweet and savory into a flavor bomb that will brighten up your plate and palate. I dubbed this one "the gold rush" because of the yellow-orange glow, but it's also a muscle-building recipe worth its weight in gold. It's easy to make in large batches and can always be customized to meet your goals and any occasion.


  • 1½ lb chicken breast

Gold Rush sauce Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp organic honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1½ tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp paprika


  1. Set oven to 400 F.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the gold rush sauce.
  3. Rub half of the mixture on the chicken breasts.
  4. Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and spray with coconut oil. Add chicken breasts to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side.
  5. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken breasts. If your skillet is all metal, place the chicken in it and allow it to bake in the oven for 10 minutes. If your skillet cannot be placed in the oven, transfer the chicken breasts to a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Garnish with green onions.
