Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


For the Chicken
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
For the Sauce


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and dried basil; set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together honey, melted butter, mustards, hot sauce, vinegar, and paprika; whisk until combined and smooth.
    Remove ¼-cup of the honey mustard and put it in a bowl - we will use this for basting. Reserve the rest for later for dipping.
  • Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil.
  • Place chicken breasts on the grill and brown for 2 minutes; turn it over and brown for 2 more minutes.
  • Brush the chicken breasts all over with half of the honey mustard basting sauce. Close the grill and cook the chicken for 7 minutes.
  • Uncover, flip and brush the chicken with more basting sauce; continue to cook for 5 to 6 more minutes, or until cooked through. Chicken is cooked when internal temperature registers at 165˚F. The thicker the chicken breasts, the longer it will take to cook through.
  • Remove cooked chicken from the grill and transfer to a cutting board; let stand 8 minutes.
  • Slice the chicken and serve with reserved honey mustard sauce.
