Juicy and flavorful chicken breasts cooked in the most delicious honey mustard sauce.

Crispy golden brown skin and a bright sweet and savory sauce plus a side salad is all that you should want. You don’t need much else when simple ingredients and baked chicken breasts are this utterly perfect. 


  • Prepare the honey mustard sauce, first: combine olive oil, honey, dijon mustard, wholegrain mustard, yellow mustard, vinegar, and paprika in a mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

We then have two choices here;

  • A) Arrange the chicken breasts in a baking dish, pour the sauce over the chicken, and pop it in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes.


  • B) Brown chicken breasts in a skillet, first, just for few minutes on each side. Then, transfer chicken to a baking dish, pour over the sauce, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

That’s pretty much it. Serve it with a side of loaded mashed cauliflower, or with this Spring Vegetable Potato Salad for a healthy and well balanced meal.

    1. Are you disagreeing with using 3 types of mustard? I’m sorry, I don’t understand your question.

  1. This dish is delicious. I didn’t have white vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar and doubled the sauce since the chicken was bigger. I’ll definitely make this again and again.

  2. Thank you for this amazing recipe! It is so delicious. I didn’t want to wait so long for the chicken to cook in the oven so before searing them I pounded them to equal thickness. After searing I poured the honey mustard sauce directly into my skillet and popped it all in the oven uncovered for 12 minutes. Juicy moist delicious chicken every time. I like to serve this with a side of basmati rice to soak up any leftover sauce.

  3. This recipe was delicious! I cooked my chicken 10 minutes less and it was still too much! Next time I might skip the searing. Very good sauce!

  4. The most delicious honey mustard chicken I have had, thank you so much. I did swap the breast for thighs and used more of the spice mix though which btw is lovely and extremely easy to make. Will definitely be making this again!!
