Honey Mustard Chicken – quick dinner idea

If you need a dinner that is full of flavor but requires next to no effort – then you want to have Honey Mustard Chicken! This is a recipe straight out of the Homemade on a Weeknight cookbook. And it may just be the easiest one in there!

Honey Mustard Chicken

Simple and Delicious are the best words to describe this dish – and it really is all in the marinade. An easy baked chicken breast will almost always win dinnertime – and the honey and yellow mustard marinade will bring it to life. If you end up with any chicken leftover – it makes for a great salad the next day!

Some days you just need something that is so quick and requires very little attention from you. This is that recipe – you will see in the recipe card below that there is only a few ingredients and 3 very short steps. If you wanted to change it up and use Dijon or Spicy Brown Mustard instead of Yellow mustard – it would give the chicken a bit of zing! but still be good.

To round out this meal you will need a side dish or two. You could do some Roasted Potatoes & Cauliflower (recipe can be found in the Homemade on a Weeknight Cookbook) or you could try a Side Dish Recipes that I have featured right here on the Blog like Citrus & Herb Whipped Cauliflower or Cheesy Rice & Broccoli. You could also do a green salad and some green beans on the side to keep it super simple!

Now let’s get cookin’

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
