A quick and easy 30 minute meal that is packed with amazing honey dijon garlic flavor! The chicken is so juicy and tender and the sauce is sweet and tangy… you are going to love it!
I have been all about the quick and easy meals lately. I just hate eating out and Little Caesar’s is getting to know us on a first name basis. I love to cook but its just so dang busy around here. I made a goal for this month that we would only go out to dinner on Friday’s and I would cook the rest of the week. No matter how busy it was. This meal had all of the things that I loved packed inside and was ready in just 30 minutes.
Quick. Easy. Minimal Ingredients. Full of delicious flavor. Can’t get enough of it… this is my kind of meal!
Let me just break down all of the delicious ingredients for you. The honey dijon mustard combo was incredible. Not too sweet. And not to tangy. It was the perfect amount of both. But then you add garlic to it and it completes it perfectly. All of the flavors combine to bring you a meal that you won’t be able to get enough of. I love using a stone ground dijon mustard because it is more grainy and coarse. Of course you can use the traditional dijon mustard if you would like. But the flavor of this chicken was so excellent that you won’t want to change a thing!
This chicken turned out perfectly and I was seriously blown away by the flavor! The chicken was so tender and juicy and the flavor of this dish is phenomenal! As soon as you try it I think that you will agree! 🙂

I have been making this dish for years and it is amazing! I make a little extra sauce to put on mashed cauliflower or cauliflower rice. I also used avocado oil instead of olive oil and I actually like that a lot better.
I have made did several times. I add red chilli flakes to mine to spice it up. Delicious!
This is one of my all-time favourite chicken recipes. It’s so easy, quick, and comes out perfectly every time. I love to serve it with mashed potatoes or baked potato wedges and a side of steamed veg.
Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
This has great flavor and quick to make.
I made this tonight for the first time and my husband said it was the best honey mustard chicken I have ever made
Honey mustard garlic chicken was delicious. Served it over rice. My family said it’s a keeper.
The honey mustard garlic chicken was amazing. Served it over rice. My family said it is a keeper. Even my five year old grandson loved it. I did wipe off some of the sauce off of his.
Just made this tonight for my family and even my pickiest eater loved it!! Thank you
Has anyone tried this in a Crock-Pot??
Dear Alissa, I made this recipe as written and had the following happen: Duringthe cooking, people from around th neighborhood came by asking what smelled so good cooking, the local stray cats and dogs gathered at our doorstep. Random strangers walked by and stared.. by the time I served this dish, not more than a few hundred people assembled around the property demanding a taste. After battering the aggressive with my dinner apron, I came to an agreement with the remaining onlookers that they get a bite IF they left a gift for someone in need. We served the dish to the satisfaction of all involved and raised more than $20 for the needy. Thank you!
This is wonderful to hear. I am so glad that you shared this with me. Thank you for doing good this holiday season!
Looks great and easy to prepare, what should I serve with it?
I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was a hit!! Thanks!!
This was amazing!!! A hit!!! Husband loved it! Followed the recipe to a T! Will make over and over again!!!
The garlic really separates this typical honey-mustard recipe from the rest, the flavor is so much better. Fantastic recipe, thanks for sharing!
OH, thank you! That is great to hear! Thank you for sharing! XOXO
Good Afternoon, will one be able to use this on chicken drumsticks as well?
Yeah, that sounds like a great idea! Let me know how it turns out! XOXO
Can I use normal Dijon not ground?
I just made this recipe for my family and they loved it. I actually kept the skin for that extra crispness and the flavor was fantastic! This is definitely and easy meal that I’ll be making more often!
That is a great idea! I love it! The skin is usually my favorite part! I am glad it was so simple and delicious for everyone! XOXO
