Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Main Dishes

This Honey Mustard Chicken breast recipe is an all time favorite for me! Tender juicy chicken breasts marinated in a flavorful honey mustard marinade and served with a delicious sauce.

This recipe makes for a killer chicken sandwich on a toasted roll. We serve sliced honey mustard chicken over a salad or next to some roasted potatoes and vegetables for the perfect healthy dinner!

Grill to Juicy Perfection

Making grilled chicken breasts provides a delicious smoky exterior while retaining the juices and this recipe is no exception. Boneless chicken breasts (or thighs) make the best grilling chicken as they’re lean and really quick to make.

If your chicken breasts are really thick, you can pound them to make them a little bit thinner and more even. Cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes on each side (this can vary based on thickness) or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F. For lean meats, I always use a thermometer to make sure they are cooked perfectly.

How To Make Honey Mustard Chicken

To make this delicious honey mustard chicken recipe:

  1. MIX: Mix the honey mustard sauce ingredients together. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the honey mustard sauce for later.
  2. MARINATE: Marinate the chicken breasts for about 4 hours in the fridge with the remaining honey mustard sauce. I find that it’s easiest to do this in a freezer bag turning it every now and then.
  3. GRILL: Grill the chicken breasts over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes on each side (this can vary based on thickness).

The reserved sauce gets mixed with a little bit of mayonnaise for a topper so good I could literally drink it. Don’t skip it, I promise it won’t disappoint!

What Goes With Honey Mustard Chicken

Serve grilled honey mustard chicken over rice, on a freshly chopped salad, or with other delicious veggies Like steamed broccoli or even Grilled Asparagus.

This is a great recipe for meal prep for the week, I chop it up with some lettuce and other delicious veggies. Pack a little honey mustard vinaigrette on the side and toss it when you’re ready to eat!
