Honey Mustard Chicken is super simple to make! serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com

It doesn't get much better then Honey Mustard Chicken! 

It's one of my staple dishes I've been making for eons; the sweet honey with the bite of grainy mustard makes this a family favorite, and I love how easy it is to assemble in under 5 minutes! 

Colt and I teamed up in the kitchen Thursday night to make this, along side a super tasty Fuji Apple Spinach Bacon Salad With A Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, OMG it was so good!I'll be sharing the recipe for the salad later in the week, I strongly suggest making them together! 

Did I mention it was so good?? 

I can't tell you how many times we've made Honey Mustard Chicken since I've been writing the blog, but something always seemed to prevent the finished photos from happening, but Colt made it a point to make sure he captured this deliciousness for you.

I think I better add Honey Mustard Chicken to next weeks dinner plan while I'm thinking of it.


Stir together:

  • 1/4 cup Grainy Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar or White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped Fresh or Dried Rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Place Chicken on a large rimmed baking pan. For easy clean up line pan with parchment paper.

Drizzle Honey Mustard Sauce over about 2 1/2 pounds Chicken Thighs.

If you prefer Chicken Drumsticks or Breasts could also be used but the cook time will need to be adjusted accordingly.


Brush Honey Mustard Sauce all over both sides of chicken.

Honey Mustard Chicken is super easy to make, juicy,  and will quickly become a family favorite!

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Baste chicken every 15 minutes. 

Turn the heat up to 400 degrees and cook an additional 20 minutes until golden brown and thighs internal temperature registers 170 to 175 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. If cooking Chicken Breast cook to an internal of 165 degrees in the thickest part of the meat.

  1. can this be made in an electric fryer?

    1. I havent tried it but i would think it would work! Thanks, Serena

  2. I made this dish the other night and my husband LOVED it! He said it was guest worthy, which is his highest level of praise. I will definitely be making this it again.

  3. I think chicken with honey it would be juicy & delicious. I gonna prepare & server to family & friends.

  4. this is looking very interesting am going to try it.

  5. Wife bought some cooked bone in thighs from deli. Do you think I could make the sauce, pour over the chicken then reheat in the oven for a while to give it that great taste ?

    1. I think it would work. I would cook it for 3-5 minutes in a small saucepan before brushing it on to prevent over cooking the precooked chicken but still thickening the sauce. Let me know how it goes!-Serena

  6. Found this on Yummly, and it sure is Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I used skinless chicken breasts 2 and cut the sauce recipe in half. Cooked it at the 350 for 35 minutes and then broiled and basted another 8 minutes until it reached 170 on the thermometer.
    I found this recipe a bit on the quiet side as far as flavor goes.
    Maybe the skin on the thighs would have helped it but it needed more of a kick so to do that I added Sweet hungarian pepper to the top.
    Then it was pretty good.
    I have a cooking page also so I do know what I am doing yet I kept tasting it and something is missing I just don't know what.
    Sorry no go for me again.
