A delicious 30 minute meal that has a tangy, creamy and bold honey mustard sauce on top!

Creamy honey mustard chicken served on a plate with broccoli as a side dish.
Let me tell you something that I love. Quick and easy on the table meals that are ready in 30 minutes. Life has become so much busier with my husbands work schedule and a newborn. But I still like to have a home cooked meal for my family. Sometimes home cooked meals consist of macaroni and cheese and corn dogs, but hey thats just life now. 🙂 I love to cook and it is just so rewarding when I do cook a delicious meal that my family loves.

Honey Mustard is one of my little boys favorite sauce. I knew that he would love this meal. The honey mustard sauce is made with heavy cream which gives this sauce a creamy delicious taste. It is really unique. Tangy, sweet, and bold which gives the chicken a delicious flavor. Picky eater and family approved. This meal was delicious!

  1. Hi you mention chicken broth but cannot seem to find it added in the method.
    Can you advise
    Can’t wait to make it… looks delicious and simple

  2. Just found your blog and I love it!! I have already made two things from your suggestions since Sunday! I made this recipe and it turned out great! In the ingredient list you mention the chicken broth, but it isn’t in the instructions down below. I used the Pioneer Woman link provided to find out where to include it! No worries, just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your recipies! =) Look forward to many trying many more!

  3. Can you recommend a substitute for the white wine? We just don’t keep it around and the recipe sounds delish! Thanks! 🙂

  4. This was really yummy, a nice subtle hint of flavor. However, my sauce was not creamy at all, it was totally liquid. I’m not sure what I did wrong, I measured everything accordingly and followed the steps.

    1. same thing happened to me, the sauce was liquid and I didn’t even add the chicken broth .. BUT! I added two tablespoons of flour and it got creamy! so next time try what I did 🙂

  5. This was delicious! I used six boneless chicken breasts and doubled the sauce ingredients. Didn’t double the honey as the 3 Tablespoons made it sweet enough. Added the chicken broth after the wine. Served this over egg noodles. The men in my house loved this recipe! I’ll be making this again!

  6. This recipe was delicious, however it was also liquidy even though we followed the recipe to the tee. So to thicken it up we added cornstarch. in a separate bowl we mixed 1 tbspoon of cornstarch with 3 tbspoons of COLD water, mixed until starch is dissolved then added to the pan before returning the chicken. worked like a charm thickened up so fast 🙂 just a helpful tip for those who have the same problem 🙂

  7. Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. Everyone loved it and it was so easy… thanks so much!

  8. This is my boyfriends favorite recipe of all time! The flavor in this recipe is amazing; I always add a little bit of cornstarch to thicken it up to my preference.

  9. Ally,
    I am now using white wine in cooking. I buy a small bottle for 1.00 at the grocery store. So, thus works well and adds a great flavor.

  10. This is a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing it! (Y)
    I added a couple of changes to the recipe, but still remains the basic idea.
    First, since I made 6 chicken breasts I added a full cup of heavy cream.
    Second, I added 2 tea spoons of cornstarch to thicken the mix.
    On the other hand, we love using Americano Gancia (vermouth bianco) at home, so I replaced the white wine with it since it’s more perfumed.
    Finally and because I didn’t have grainy mustard, I only used regular mustard and dijon but I added a pinch of smoked sweet paprika to give it a beautiful and distinctive favor.
    To go with these chicken breasts I prepared a cup of rise with a bacon and onion broth, but you can use any you like. On a separate skillet I saute a handful of cashews and some sesame seeds. Added some salt and pepper and while they were getting nice and roasted I added one chopped scallion just a little bit of hot water so they wouldn’t burn and added the rise to the same skillet.

    Now you have a great side for this delicious chicken. Voilá! Bon apetit!

  11. Hi there! I would like to try your creamy honey mustard recipe (it looks wonderful) for my daughter’s birthday next week and I’d like to know if it can be done in a crockpot!!

    Please let me know and thanks so much!!

    1. I am sure it would be fine in a crockpot. I am not sure if the wine would fully cook out but other than that, your chicken will have a different texture than cooked on the stove top. Let me know what you think! Hope it goes well! Happy birthday to your daughter! XOXO

  12. Have made this several times already. The second time, used white grape juice in place of the wine, and it worked great. Last night made it using pork tenderloin medallions. Awesome. Thanks for all the great recipes.

  13. Can you but the nutritional facts after the recipe for the people who have to watch the carbs and sugar

    1. I have found the best way to get nutritional info on all of the recipes is through You just type in the recipe and it tells you! is also a great resource for healthy and delicious meals and provides nutritional info. Hope this helps! XOXO

  14. I love to see recipes since I like to cook. but I wish they have the calories, fat, protein, etc. I will try it since is easy

  15. I am excited to try the recipe for some guest in the near future! Question I have is: what would be a good choice for a cooking white wine??? Appreciate your recommendations. THANKYOU!

  16. Everyone loved it. I should have thicken the sauce but I didn’t. Will definitely make it again. Thanks!
