When I started cooking, I never really knew how to prepare my proteins to make them tasty. Although sometimes I’ll still eat them plain when I want something simple, I love to find EASY ways to make them more interesting. That’s where this easy honey mustard chicken comes in!

This chicken dish is really delicious but it’s still slightly mild so I think pretty much everyone would like this, including kids! The sauce also adds a really great texture.

How to Make Easy Honey Mustard Chicken:

Don’t worry, it’s simple to make! Start by mixing up all the ingredients (except for the chicken) into a bowl. Then cut the raw chicken into bite-size pieces.

Now add the chicken and the sauce to a large pan on medium and mix around until the sauce is all mixed in. Cook the chicken with the top on, while mixing every so often, until the chicken is fully cooked. It only took me about 10 minutes to cook so it’s pretty quick! If you’re unsure about when your chicken is ready, I encourage you to use a meat thermometer! If you don’t have one, definitely get one! This is the one I have. It’s so cheap for peace of mind knowing your meat is cooked enough. Chicken needs to reach an internal temperate of about 165°F.

Once it’s done, top with fresh parsley if desired, and serve with whatever you like! I served mine with brown jasmine rice, roasted red cabbage, and avocado.
