Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

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!) 

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.

What you’ll need to make this AMAZING Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

  • Chicken (Just sayin’…)
  • Dijon Mustard (I know…shocking)
  • Honey (It’s amazing I’m allowed to be a recipe blogger)
  • Mayonnaise (Ya didn’t see that one coming did you?)
  • Steak Sauce (Mind blown! Not sure how the cows feel about this?

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!)

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.

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 bee’s 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.

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.

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!

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.

I know your family will love this Grilled 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!

I’m sharing this delicious recipe with all my friend over on Meal Plan Monday and The Weekend Pot Luck. Click to join the parties!

Enjoy! Happy Nesting Friends…

    Sounds wonderful, Norine! I have to see if we have any steak sauce on hand, but otherwise, we’re set!

    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!
