This Honey Mustard Chicken Grilled Chicken breast recipe is a household favorite! Chicken marinates in a flavorful sauce and yields succulent chicken breasts perfect for sandwiches or topping a salad.

I know my farm friends are always looking for on the go meals, so you’re gonna love this recipe.

Options are limitless. Make this chicken and serve on a roll to your favorite farmer. Eating at home? Chop tender, cooked chicken up and serve it over a salad.

No matter how you make it, just make it!

One of the reasons I love cooking with chicken is it’s so diverse. It takes on flavors beautifully in this recipe, too.

The honey mustard sauce reminds me of the chicken nugget sauce at Wendy’s. I told our teenage daughter that and she looked at me like I was from another planet.

You decide and let me know.

How to make honey mustard grilled chicken breasts

Because boneless chicken breasts seem to be sporting DD’s these days, I like slicing my chicken breasts in half horizontally before cooking. This keeps the chicken tender and eliminates the drying out that can happen with big cuts of meat. It also keeps the portion size in check!

I like to grill my chicken breasts over medium heat, about 7-8 minutes per side, depending on their thickness. A meat thermometer is one of my best friends in the kitchen! Cook the chicken until it registers 165 degrees.

Ideas to mix up honey mustard grilled chicken

  • use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts
  • no Dijon mustard in your fridge? Substitute the same amount of plain old yellow mustard
  • serve grilled chicken on a brioche roll or burger bun

What to serve with grilled honey mustard chicken

Serve your honey mustard chicken on a bun, or topping a salad. Great sides are steamed broccoli, grilled sweet potato wedges or rice.

This easy recipe is also great as a freezer, or make ahead meal. Just give the chicken and honey mustard a mix in a gallon sized ziplock bag and refrigerate or freeze your marinaded chicken for later.
