Honey mustard chicken recipe is a must try!

I have a delicious dinner idea for you… it is crazy easy I can barely call it a recipe. Well I’m going to, but it is really that easy.

I was alone with 9 kids and I didn’t want to order in pizza and really wanted to make a quick and easy dinner. After thinking for a few minutes this skillet Honey Mustard chicken recipe was born.

In 15 minutes this delicious dinner was ready and the kids devoured it – I mean devoured it. Now I didn’t tell them it was made with mustard because a few might have refused. They all loved it and requested it be put on the regular dinner rotation.

Win for mom! Not only was this so tasty but we saved money too by eating at home. Plus, I’m pretty sure that it was faster than takeout.

How to make honey mustard chicken:

First, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Once this reaches medium high heat, add the chicken breasts and season with the salt and pepper.

Second, brown the chicken on each side. This only takes a few minutes on each side. Usually in about 5 minutes each side is golden brown.

Next, get a small mixing bowl. Whisk together the mustard, Dijon mustard, honey and butter. Once this is well combined, pour the honey mustard mixture all over the chicken in the pan.

Now add the water to the pan.

Finally, reduce the heat to low and let simmer for about 10-15 minutes covered. The chicken needs to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

  1. Shannon – You can do this in the instant pot, but I think that it might take a bit longer. I would cook the chicken on the sauté feature to brown the chicken on each side. Then, add 1 cup of liquid (water or chicken broth) and put the chicken on the trivet that comes with the instant pot and cook on the pressure cooking setting for 5 minutes with the natural release feature on. Let me know how it turns out!

  2. Could this also be an oven recipe? Or a slow cooker recipe? What would you recommend? Thanks!!

  3. You can make it in either the slow cooker or oven. Either would work great great. For the slow cooker, I would put all the ingredients in the crock pot with 1/2 cup of chicken broth and cook on low for 6-8 hours until the chicken is cooked through. If you use the oven, I would bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

    I made this last night and all I can say is WOW!! The flavor was awesome. I usually am not a mustard person but this was excellent!! Definitely a keeper.

  5. Do you use dijon mustard or brown mustard? brown mustard is more grainy. just wondering 🙂
