A One Pan Chicken Recipe To Make 365 Days A Year

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. This easy one pan dinner is a staple around our house year-round. We like to serve a big salad (like The Kale Salad or a Simple Butter Lettuce Salad) with honey mustard chicken and call it a meal.

Ingredients You’ll Need To Make The Best Honey Mustard Sauce

This 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 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. You can use it to make Honey Mustard Salmon the next time around.

  • Salt and paprika – Simple seasoning for maximum depth of flavor.

  • Apple cider vinegar – This is optional, but we love the slight acidic bite it adds to the sauce.

How To Make This One-Pan Chicken And Potatoes

Honey mustard chicken and potatoes, in three super-fast steps. The whole thing takes about an hour start-to-finish, but most of that is inactive time—just waiting for the oven to work its magic.

  1. Make the sauce. Whisk together the honey-mustard sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

  2. Roast the potatoes, shallots and rosemary in a braiser or oven-safe baking dish until the potatoes are starting to tenderize.

  3. Add the chicken, spoon some sauce over it, and bake until the chicken is done!

How to Store One Pan Honey Mustard Chicken And Veggies + Tips

  • Chicken is one of those ingredients that’s great in the freezer before and after you cook it! Store leftovers (including the green beans and potatoes!) in the fridge for 3-4 days, or up to 3 months in the freezer.

  • The honey mustard chicken leftovers can be cut up and tossed into a salad or grain bowl, or served as part of a hearty sandwich on toasted wheat bread with greens, avocado, and sliced tomato.

  • Honey mustard sauce is the world’s greatest, pour-on-everything dressing! We use leftovers on salads and veggies throughout the week.

One Pan Honey Mustard Chicken and Vegetables

  • Serves: 6
  • Prep Time:  15 min
  • Cook Time:  1 hr
  • Calories: 474

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large shallots, roughly chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 pound fingerling or Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • ½ pound green beans, trimmed
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Honey-Mustard Sauce

  • ¼ cup whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F with a rack in the center position.

  2. Make the chicken. Season the chicken all over with 1 teaspoon of the salt. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large ovenproof skillet or braiser over medium-high heat. Once the oil is glistening, add the chicken to the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

  3. Meanwhile, make the honey-mustard sauce. In a small bowl, combine the whole grain mustard, Dijon, honey, remaining ½ teaspoon of the salt, apple cider vinegar, paprika and garlic powder.

  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to the skillet. Once the oil is glistening, add the shallots, potatoes, and rosemary and toss to combine. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes begin to soften.

  5. Remove the skillet from the oven. Add the green beans to the potato mixture, then nestle the chicken back into the skillet along with the juices from the plate. Pour the honey-mustard sauce over the chicken, green beans and potatoes and toss to coat.

  6. Return the skillet to the oven and bake until the green beans and potatoes are tender and the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer, 25-30 minutes longer.

Slow Cooker Method:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the whole grain mustard, Dijon, honey, ½ teaspoon of the salt, apple cider vinegar, paprika, and garlic powder.

  2. Season the chicken all over with 1 teaspoon of the salt. Add the chicken, shallots, potatoes, rosemary, green beans, and honey mustard sauce to the slow cooker and toss to combine. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours. If you prefer your green beans more al dente, add them to the slow cooker about 2 hours before it’s done cooking.

  • JJsav

    Hey what’s the best way to reheat this ?( if I want to make it like an hour in advance )

    In the oven at about 325 until the chicken registers 165F internally.

  • Sally

    Can I use can green beans

    Yes, that will work fine. Enjoy!

  • Diana

    Can part, or all of this dish (pan honey mustard) be made the day before?
    Thank you,
    Diana

    Sure!

  • Sabreena

    A bit fidgety by placing pan in oven twice (I'd probably half boil the potatoes next time ), also in the last part would leave it in the oven for less as drying up a bit .
    Everyone liked it. You can't beat the combination of meat with potatoes

    Thanks Sabreena, glad you enjoyed it.

  • Gayle

    I did a few things differently. I skipped the potatoes and green beans, and substituted dijon mustard for the whole grain mustard.
    1. Double the sauce recipe and mix it with (double) the rosemary.
    2. Cube the chicken.
    3. Salt and pepper then brown the chicken in 2 tbsp avocado oil.
    4. Brown shallots in 1 tbsp avocado oil.
    5. Add shallots and sauce to the chicken and simmer until cooked.

    Delicious with rice!

    Glad you enjoyed it Gayle!

  • I

    I have cancer, so I was looking for something to make that I could handle, and that would taste good. I love to cook, but I'm running out of ideas. I'm going to make this tomorrow.

    PS: Don't feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for the cancer:)

    You'll beat this! Hope you enjoy this one.

  • Jill

    Great dish. Very easy to prepare. The entire family loved it.

    Thanks Jill, so glad the whole family loved this one!

  • Rosemary

    Really loved this recipe - I used broccoli rather than green beans and added garlic and mushrooms. Definitely added to my favourites list!

    Yay! That is so wonderful to hear. Thank you Rosemary!
