Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

Sharing is caring!

It’s GRILLIN’ Season! Break out the Bar-b-que… and let’s say “Howdy Sunshine!” with this glorious Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken! Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast are marinated in a simple 4 ingredient Honey Mustard Marinade!

 Yep… I said FOUR ingredients! (I know… I impress myself occasionally too! Like when I walk into a room and remember why! Granted it’s the bathroom…but let’s not get picky!) 

Two Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Breast

I should feel guilty for even doing a post about such a simple recipe, except for the fact that this particular recipe is OUTSTANDING!

It’s one of my all-time favorites ! It makes regular appearances during the summer months at this Nest, and I wanted to share it this year with you and the birds at your Nest.

How To Make Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

In a large zip lock bag… place 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves.  Add 1/3 cup Dijon Mustard, 1/4 cup honey, 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons steak sauce.  (I have mad photography skills! National Geographic will be calling any day! Insert eye roll!)

Large zip lock bag with chicken and marinade ingredients

Zip the bag shut! (I just want to make sure…sometimes it’s the small things that can make a BIG difference!)  Then squish it all around and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes…up to 24 hours. I don’t want you to feel rushed. Lol The longer it marinades, the better the flavors.

Let’s Talk Honey!

TIPS: Let’s talk Honey! Since one of the main ingredients in this recipe is Honey, I feel it is really important to use a really good quality honey! REAL Honey is expensive!

If you’re getting a bottle of honey for less than $5.00 You are not getting Honey! I don’t know what you’re buying…but it’s not real honey! The 50,000,000 bees from the Bee Workers Union want you to know this!

I recommend a raw honey! The flavor is outstanding and the Queen Bee gives her stamp of approval!

TIP: I like to fillet my chicken breasts. It’s a great way to stretch a meal and cut down on cook time. The breasts I buy from Costco are ultra thick. In addition, if you fillet them, you can make a great Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich! Skip the burgers and go for a chicken sandwich instead.

How To Grill Chicken Breast

Preheat the grill for medium heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill Chicken over indirect heat for 18–20 minutes, turning occasionally, or until juice run clear.

Note: I used an indoor grilling pan because it was too windy to grill outdoors. However, if you can, I highly recommend grilling this over an open flame. The smoke adds an extra depth of flavor. It’s excellent either way… I just prefer outdoor grilling when I can.

Grilling Chicken

I like to mix up a second batch of the marinade and use it for basting the chicken the last 10 minutes of cook time.

Once the chicken is done remove from grill and allow to rest for 5–10 minutes.  Isn’t that a beautiful dish!

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

I serve this with grilled left over baked potatoes and grilled sweet peppers! The chicken is covered in a creamy honey mustard glaze that gets added zip from the steak sauce. The flavors are rich, deep, slightly sweet, and truly so spectacular! They truly compliment each other.

Cut Chicken Breast

You can use this recipe with Chicken Tenders and thread them on skewers for an amazing fun family dinner menu main course.

Here are a few Great Grilling Recipes you may enjoy at your Nest

I know your family will love this Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken as much as our family does. I see long summer nights and lots of “family” time with this dish front and center stage! Perfect!

Enjoy! Happy Nesting Friends!

Hi Bob!

It's so great to hear from you! I love connecting with the "Old Fallbrook" Gang. Such wonderful memories and wonderful people. I have to say I'm 100% on board with your love of Tri tip! (I've just added it to our Labor Day menu! My family should thank you!) I don't have any recipes on the blog specifically for Tri tip...BUT the recipe for the Marinated London Broil is FANTASTIC on Tri tip as well! Another great marinade on the blog is the one for Carne Asada, add 1-2 blended Chipotle peppers for a hint of smokey flavor, and it would make for a great Tri Tip with a Mexican Flare...paired with grilled flour tortillas, guac, my copy cat cafe rio pinto beans...Yum! You can't go wrong with that London Broil marinade either. As far as a side that pairs well with a grilled Tri family LOVES the Parmesan Garlic Butter Baby Red "guys" gobble them up! So good and so easy! Cowboy baked beans is another great side with Tri Tip. Another favorite at this Nest is my Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeno peppers. Recently had guests over and one guest couldn't get enough of them...he had 10! lol Salads that go great would be the California Slaw with it's added bacon, tomato, and blue cheese. Such a great salad or the Caesar Wedge Salad would be a great addition. Hope some of this helps. Thanks so much for stopping truly appreciate it! Hope every thing is well for you and your family too! Stop by again...Soon! ~Norine

I would love to know what steak sauce you used we have 2 on hand. I think 57 sauce would add great zing?

Hi Lesa! Sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you. We had a death in the family and had to make the long drive to Texas to attend the funeral. I'm just getting back and caught up. I used A-1 sauce. We always only have two in this house too...A-1 and 57! I'm going to try the 57 next time. Did you use it? I'd love to know how it turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a GREAT week! Happy Nesting! ~Norine
