Tell me you are fans of honey mustard sauce. Because I am a big fan. There are few things I would pour a boat-load of honey mustard sauce on.  But then I’m a sauce person. The kind that needs fries with my ketchup and about a gallon of ranch for my chicken tenders.

So yeah, I love me some honey mustard sauce.

I’m also a sauce person, and this looks delicious!

I LOVE honey mustard. This chicken looks so tender and delicious… mmm honey mustard. Pinned!

Need to make these immediately! My mouth is watering!


Made this for dinner last night–quick, easy, and delicious!

I made this for luch today, it was really delicious!

We made this for the 2nd time tonight. Delicious and easy recipe! Thank you!

What a tasty and easy weeknight dinner! I just made this tonight and it was a hit with my boyfriend and is now on our meal rotation list. I substituted the rice/noodle suggestion with quinoa.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing! We had Gereen Beans with it and homemade baked potatoe pieces with misc. spices on them. I had allot of sauce left over from the chicken but then there is only two of us so I only made 2 pieces. I added the extra sauce into the potatoes and green beans and it was good. Will definetky be making this as a meal again.

This turned out delicious. I brined the chicken first and it turned out to be the most moist chicken I have ever had.

Hello my name is lori and I have made your baked honey mustard chicken and it has turned out amazing the two times that I have made it. With this recipe could I do it in the crock pot to get the chicken nice and soft?

Your chicken looks so yummy with all the sauce in the slits. Do you cut before cooking or slice after and spoon excess sauce over top?

I’ don’t usually ask such retardd questions but this fish looks so easy but I’ve tried a couple easy ones recently that bombed!!

Thanks for your input 😊👍

    Hi Vicki! I cut it after cooking and then spoon the sauce over the top 🙂

Made this last night so so good even picky hubby liked it said it tasted like teriyaki

I tried this tonight and it was delish! I always cut my chicken breasts in half so that they aren’t as thick and also cook faster, and I only used 1/2 tsp paprika and it turned out great. But I was wondering, what’s the estimated calorie count for one of these breasts? Thanks! 🙂

This was a really great jumping off point. I followed the technique and most of the ingredients, but added some ground ginger and chili powder to the marinade to give it a little Asian flair. It was awesome.

    Hi. Do you use dry italian seasoning or a salad dressing italian seasoning??

      Dry Italian seasoning 🙂

I hate to ask this, but, a how many calories?

4 stars
I just put it in the oven and it smell wonderful. I cut the mustard in half, added 1/4 cup of italian salad dressing and cut the italian seasoning in half. I tasted it after I added all the ingredients and it was wonderful, can’t wait for it to be done. I am serving it with Orzo pasta and broccoli..

Tried this in my crockpot on low for about 6-7 hours and it turned out delicious! There was lots of leftover sauce too which was fantastic. I love having leftover sauce to dip my chicken in. I actually hate mustard, so I was apprehensive when I started off making this recipe (1/2 C of mustard is a ton for someone who hates the stuff) but your pictures looked so mouthwatering that I had to try this recipe. It turned out super delicious and I’d definitely make it again!

    Good to know because I hate yellow mustard! I was looking for something to make for dinner tomorrow and came across this and it looks so delicious, but was apprehensive because of the mustard. I think I’ll give it a try! 🙂

May I use honey mustard instead of each individual honey and mustard

May I use honey mustard instead of each individual honey and mustard?

This Honey Mustard Chicken is amazing for its simplicity! Very rich flavor and kick. My hubby loves it. Would love to try a little dijon in the mix as we like spicy, but very very good! Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe! Would be great for entertaining too! Just throw it all in an aluminum throw away pan and viola!

This was great! Thanks for the recipe, I added a little mayo to make it creamy, I will be cooking this again!

Made this about three times now. It’s honestly one of the easiest and yummiest dishes I’ve made. WHOLE family likes it. Thank you!!

I made this about a week ago, I used spicy brown mustard (all I had at time), added a little mayo because I make homemade honey mustard sauce with mayo all the time, also added a little red pepper flakes because we like heat in this house. I baked it along with greenbeans all in the same pan with the sauce, it was heavenly!! There was nothing left of it. I’m making it again tonight but this time I’m making it with 3 pounds of chicken and more green beans because we’re having some people over for dinner! I can’t wait!

This was really yummy. My chicken got a bit overcooked- a bit dry. i use very large chicken breasts cut down to 2-3 smaller pieces since one serving should be about 4 oz. next time i will cut down the baking time, but otherwise this was wonderful!

We tried this tonight and it was a hit! Def will make this again

Hi I tried your honey mustard chicken fantastic but one thing I don’t understand you said you poured sauce over chicken before cooking but then you told Vicki in comments you poured it on chicken after you cooked it

    Hi Daniel- I spoon the excess sauce over the top after cooking 🙂
