Baking boneless skinless chicken breasts this long (50 minutes) is only going to make them tough and dry, despite the flavorful coating. Made this as directed and found it way too sweet (I would add at most 1T of honey next time) and the mustard mixture really can't be "drizzled" so much as "glopped" onto the food. The sweet potato chunks weren't all cooked through, but the chicken was way past done, tough and chewy. The flavor overall wasn't worth a repeat attempt. I should have known better, reading the directions, that this wouldn't really work and I was right.
