Grilled Chicken with Honey Mustard Glaze


This Grilled Chicken with Honey Mustard Glaze is about as easy as dinner gets! It requires minimal ingredients and since it’s cooked on the grill clean up is a breeze! Even though there aren’t a lot of ingredients it’s still packed with flavor thanks to that delicious honey and dijon mustard combination. If you aren’t a big fan a dijon you can use half dijon mustard and half yellow mustard and you’ll still get a delicious end result. Really the dijon flavor isn’t over powering here though even though it is a full 1/4 cup, the honey and the little bit of butter and olive oil really just tones down its strong robust flavor and balances it out really well. My kids don’t normally like dijon mustard but they loved this chicken so that should give you an idea.

I’ve already made this chicken twice in the past few weeks and I know it will be a regular on our summer dinner menu. It’s nice to keep the heat outside and grill dinner instead of baking or roasting some sort of dinner in the oven during these hot summer months. Plus, isn’t grilled food just that much better with its delicious slightly charred flavor? I know I’m hooked and it won’t stop here. The grilling has just begun :). In case you missed it I recently shared two other amazingly tasty grilled chicken recipes you can try along with this one, there’s this Cumin Rubbed Grilled Chicken with Chimichurri Sauce and this Hoisin Glazed Grilled Chicken (which is basically just an Asian style grilled chicken) – all are delicious so be sure to try then all at least once this summer!

  • Maggie: This looks fantastic! Unfortunately we live in an apartment with no grilling allowed! Could this be adapted to a skillet? Or would the glaze burn? October 9, 2018 at 1:52pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes like you say I think that the glaze would burn unfortunately. October 11, 2018 at 10:42pm Reply

  • Mary: Did this recipe grilled honey mustard chicken and sauce and let me tell you all it was fantastic. My husband said “wow”, so delicious and tender. The only thing different is that the weather out hear in California was to hot to do the b.b.q. So I broiled them in the oven watched them and baste them as the recipe called. Timing was just as good in the oven. Yes the 1/4 mustard was not a problem as stated by Jaclyn. It was so good!!
    This will be a recipe I will use for dinner party’s. Thank god for air conditioning. July 26, 2016 at 9:42pm Reply
