Working with one at a time, place a chicken breast into a re-sealable bag. Don't zip it up all of the way so air will be able to escape.
Using the flat side of a meat tenderizer, pound the chicken breast to about a 1/2-inch thickness. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
Next whisk the mustard, salt, paprika, cayenne and red pepper flakes, honey, garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup of the honey mustard mixture to use later on.
Place the chicken breasts into a large bowl, pour the remaining honey mustard mixture over top. Toss and cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for about 30 minutes at room temp.
Preheat the grill on medium- medium high heat, grill chicken for about 6 to 8 minutes per side or until chicken is done.
Transfer the grilled chicken to a platter to rest for 5 minutes. Pour the reserved 4 tablespoons of honey-mustard sauce over chicken before serving.
TO BAKE IN THE OVEN:
Preheat your oven to 350° and lightly grease a baking dish.
In a medium bowl whisk together the mustard, salt, paprika, cayenne, pepper flakes, honey, garlic and lemon juice. Reserve 1/4 cup of the honey mustard mixture to use later on.
Toss chicken in the remaining sauce to coat and place in your prepared dish.
Bake for 30 minutes, then turn chicken over and bake another 10 minutes or until cooked through.
Lastly, drizzle with desired amount of the remaining sauce before serving.
