Easy Dinner Trick #1: Use What You’ve Got

This baked honey mustard chicken recipe is one of those magical one-pan dinners that we often find ourselves making when we’re overdue for a trip to the grocery store. Using ingredients we’ve almost always got around—potatoes (they last forever so we like to stock up), chicken breast, Dijon mustard—we’re able to toss together a quick and healthy dinner that’ll squeeze out one more day before we’ve got to face the supermarket again. And isn’t that just the best feeling?

Easy Dinner Trick #2: Drizzle Honey Mustard Sauce on Everything.

Dijon mustard has that perfect mustard seed heat, and golden, raw honey is an ideal foil—together they make the worlds’ greatest, pour-on-everything dressing! Our honey mustard sauce for chicken is as basic as they come, and that’s just the way we like it. It transforms this simple meal of chicken breast, potatoes and green beans into a savory, juicy one-pan dinner worthy of a French bistro. Plus, this super yummy honey mustard sauce is made with ingredients you’ve probably always got in your fridge and pantry. All you’ll need is:

  • Dijon mustard. Accept no substitutes! Mustards vary a lot, and Dijon mustard is definitely the mustard you want to use for this sauce. We love its assertive mustard-y heat, and complex flavor. Save that all-American yellow mustard for summer hot dogs.
  • Honey. We make this recipe using raw honey, because it’s what we have at home. However, any honey you have around will work fine.
  • Salt.
  • Paprika.
  • Apple cider vinegar. This is optional, but we love the slight acidic bite it adds to the sauce.
