Tips and Notes

  • Make is spicy by adding some sriracha sauce, cayenne pepper or chili flakes.
  • Adjust the honey to make it sweeter or less sweet.
  • If you don’t have chicken breasts, you can swap with chicken thighs, just adjust the cook time.
  • The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken breasts is 165 F so if you’re not sure if your pan seared chicken is done, you can use an instant read thermometer.
  • The cook time for the chicken breasts are quick as we slice the chicken breasts in half so they’re not as thick.

FAQs

How do I store leftover honey mustard chicken?

If you have leftovers (or you make extra for lunch the next day), you can store the chicken, once cooled, into an airtight container. Then store it in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat the honey mustard chicken in the microwave.

How long does it take to bake chicken?

If you decide to bake this dish, you totally can. The baking time will all depend on the size of the chicken piece and the thickness. If you are slicing the breast in the middle like I did to make it thinner, then 20 minutes on 400 F would be ideal. But if you are using the whole breast as is, then you are looking for anywhere from 30-40 minutes. However if you are using a whole breast, pour the sauce in during the last 15 minutes of cooking so the sauce doesn’t burn.

How do you know when chicken is fully cooked?

If you are not sure if the chicken is fully cooked, you can use an instant cooking meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken. It should be at 165 F.

What is the honey mustard sauce made of?

This particular recipe’s sauce is made of chicken broth, honey, coarse Dijon mustard, mustard seeds, lemon juice, paprika, black pepper, fine rosemary, onion powder, ginger powder and salt.
