The creamiest honey mustard chicken ever! It’s so good, you’ll want to eat the honey mustard itself with a spoon!

Growing up, I was NEVER a fan of mustard.

It was only ketchup and BBQ sauce for me. And it’s not that I wasn’t a fan. I would almost start gagging if it was right beside me. I don’t know what it was but it was not something I would touch with a ten foot pole.

 But in the last 5 yrs, something drastically changed in my adult palate.

Now, I just can’t get enough mustard in my diet.  Yellow, dijon, grainy, roquefort – you name it. I love it all.

But when it’s a honey mustard combo, well, that’s my culinary heaven right there.

And although I could guzzle down this honey mustard without any issues, I decided to add in some crisp oven-roasted chicken thighs. You know. Just because.

The creamiest honey mustard chicken ever! It’s so good, you’ll want to eat the honey mustard itself with a spoon!


  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey, or more, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock, or more, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 sprigs rosemary


  • 1 tablespoon olive
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To make the mustard rub, combine olive oil and whole grain mustard in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using your fingers or a brush, work the mustard rub onto both sides of the chicken.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, honey and chicken stock. Add more chicken stock as needed until desired consistency is reached; set aside.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Add mustard mixture and sprinkle with rosemary.
  5. Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.

Baked honey mustard chicken is packed full of flavor, and uses a handful of ingredients that you likely already have in the house. This is one of my go-to chicken dinners!

Baked chicken is such an easy yet satisfying way to do dinner, and this honey mustard chicken is no exception. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are smothered in a homemade honey mustard sauce and baked to juicy perfection in this amazingly delicious dish.


This recipe starts with a 5 minute homemade honey mustard sauce, made with two types of mustard, honey and butter. Simply stir everything together, pour over the chicken, then bake!

I like to sear my chicken breasts to give them a golden brown crust before I cover them with sauce. That’s an optional step, but I feel like it’s worth the extra few minutes and adds so much flavor.

After the chicken is covered in sauce, it goes into the oven to bake. The chicken starts out covered, then is uncovered during the last portion of the bake time.

After the chicken has cooked through, add a sprinkling of parsley, then serve. If you don’t have parsley on hand, other great options are green onions, chives, dill or thyme.


It takes 25-35 minutes to bake chicken, depending on the size and thickness of your chicken breasts. If you sear your chicken before placing it in the baking dish, it will need less time in the oven since the chicken is partially cooked at that point.


If you’re not sure if your chicken breasts are fully cooked, use a meat thermometer to check the temperature. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken breasts is 165 degrees F, so be sure that your thermometer registers at least that high.
