Honey Mustard Chicken Dinner is an easy one pot meal.

Honey Mustard Chicken Dinner Recipe:

This yummy meal is ready to eat in about 45 minutes. If you can, make it all in an ovenproof skillet so there is just one dirty cooking pan and a small bowl to whisk up the sauce.

Using an ovenproof skillet is an easy way to reduce work and clean up. The whole meal is in one pot. It needs nothing more. We loved it exactly like you see it.

No ovenproof skillet?

  • transfer the sauteed veggies to a greased 9 x 13 baking dish before adding the chicken rosemary sprigs and the sauce.
  • Cover and bake as directed.
  • You can also cook this dinner entirely on the stove top.
  • You will need to cover it and watch it as it simmers to be sure it doesn’t stick but it’s doable.

The Ingredients:

This dinner uses up any veggies you have ready to harvest in the garden or fridge. I prefer carrots, fingerling potatoes and fresh green beans if I have them.

Vegetables:

  • The carrots and bell peppers are really a must.
  • The green beans are excellent when they are fresh in season.
  • Do NOT substitute canned green beans for this recipe. They will be mushy.
  • The flavors and texture of carrots and peppers are so perfect with this easy chicken dinner.

The Oil:

Avocado oil is a clear winner for any high heat recipe. I use Avocado oil because it withstands heat up to 520 degrees and is excellent for your family health.

If you are out of avocado oil any high heat oil will work for this flavorful recipe. Substitute peanut oil or even coconut oil.

Chicken:

  • You may substitute other cuts of chicken for this recipe. Use boneless skinless chicken breast or chicken thighs for the chicken tenders. I used fresh organic free range chicken tenders.
  • You may use frozen chicken tenders or thighs. The cooking time is roughly the same. check the oven the last five minutes to make sure any frozen chicken parts you use are thoroughly cooked.
  • To make sure your chicken cooks correctly use 6 oz. pieces. You may have to cut large chicken breasts into 6 oz pieces of roughly the same thickness to ensure even cooking in your meat.

The Honey Mustard Sauce:

The honey mustard sauce blends well with many diverse vegetables and enhances the chicken with its piquant flavor.

Gluten Free ingredient tips: I have linked gluten free mustards in the recipe card. Not all mustard is gluten free. This article by Very Well Fit will give you a more detailed look at gluten free mustards.

Thickening the sauce:

This recipe has a thin flavorful honey mustard sauce. It’s very good as it stands. If you want a sauce that pours well over sides or just prefer a thicker sauce follow these instructions.

For a creamy chicken dinner follow the instructions below. You may also add 1/4 Cup whole milk, half n half or heavy cream for a richer sauce.

  1. Remove the chicken and vegetables to a serving platter.
  2. Mix 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch or arrowroot powder with 1/4 Cup water. Add it to your sauce.
  3. Boil the sauce on your stove top, stirring constantly until the sauce turns clear and begins to thicken.
  4. It will continue to thicken as it cools.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve it straight out the of the skillet with a nice crusty artisan bread.
  • Serve over rice or potatoes
  • Heavy filling salads partner well with this dinner if you are feeding large appetites.

Good side dishes for this dinner:

Honey Mustard chicken dinner has all the veggies and protein you need. Filling heavy carb salads like these would be good sides for this dinner. Enjoy!
