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.

    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.

  2. Crissy

    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!

  3. Marie

    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!!

      I haven’t tried that, but I don’t see why not. It will definitely work. Won’t taste as I intended it with this particular recipe, but I’m sure it will be great!

      1. Sharon Dietrich

        Made this for the first time and served to company. It was delicious! I also added water to the pan in which I browned the breasts. In that I cooked the fresh asparagus. Oh my! Thank you for an easy terrific meal!!

  4. Amanda

    Thanks for this recipe!! My family of picky eaters loves it and I’ve doubled it and brought some to friends with new babies, etc and they always ask for the recipe too! 🙂

  5. Lisa

    This was a delicious recipe. The rub on the chicken and then the sauce makes it irresistible. It seems forgiving I used a horseradish grain mustard and it was just great.

    1. Lisa

      I’ve made this many many times over the past year and have to say it’s the best chicken I’ve ever made and ever had. Fantastic! Thank you for posting it.

  6. Ramona

    Great flavor! We made this with pork chops and added carrots and asparagus during that last 10 minutes in the oven.

  7. Ashley

    One of the best honey mustard chicken recipes I’ve ever had! Super juicy and I loved the chicken seasoning it was so so delicious!!! Definitely making again!

  8. Amy

    This is absolutely delicious! My 11 year old kept asking for more. Glad I made extra for work next week. Will definitely be making this again

    I went into making this as a way to test if my body reacts to honey. I also have an injured wrist, so cooking is a bit of a challenge. I did make a few modifications, but it turned out great and will stay in my recipe box, even if only to make for others.

    The sauce was easy to make and wonderful! I followed the instructions for this the way it was written.

    For the chicken, I bought chicken breast sliced into strips and then cut those into bite size pieces. I also seasoned the chicken with Lawry’s seasoning salt before mixing the sauce with the chicken in a large ziploc bag. I then heated the extra oil in a large skillet and cooked the chicken and rosemary sprig over medium heat until most of the sauce was absorbed or evaporated. Turned up the heat to brown the chicken.
