Let's Get Started!

  3. Versatile:  Perfect for a summer BBQ or a cozy dinner at home.  Pair it with your favorite sides for a complete meal.  


To create this delightful Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken, you'll need the following ingredients.  


  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Whole Grain or Dijon Mustard
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Marinade:  In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.  This sweet and smokey mixture with infuse the chicken with incredible flavor.  
  2. Marinate the Chicken:  Place the chicken in a large resealable bag or shallow dish.  Pour HALF the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well coated.  Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for a deeper flavor infusion.  
  3. Preheat the Grill:  Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.  If you're using a charcoal grill, make sure the coals are evenly distributed for consistent cooking.  
  4. Grill the Chicken:  Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off and excess.  Season both sides with salt and pepper.  Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook for about 6-7 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F/75°C.  Once you flip your chicken the first time, begin basting with the other half of the marinade.  This will take a few applications to get that nice glossy finish.  
  5. Serve and Enjoy:  Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. This helps the juices redistribute, keeping the chicken moist and tender.  Serve hot!







  • Even Thickness:  Pound the chicken breast to an even thickness for uniform cooking. 
  • Marinate Longer:  For more intense flavor, marinate the chicken overnight.  
  • Grill Marks:  To achieve beautiful grill marks, avoid moving the chicken too often.  


  • Grilled Vegetables:  Bell peppers, zucchini, and asparagus complement the chicken perfectly.
  • Fresh Salad:  A crisp garden salad with a light vinaigrette enhances the meal's freshness. 
  • Rice or Quinoa:  These grains soak up the flavorful juices, making every bits delightful.
