Does the world need another Honey-Mustard Chicken? Too bad, it's getting one. This is a good simple worknight meal with great flavour. Serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.

The chicken was very tasty - good flavor combination! Mine never thickened/carmalized so I added about 1 Tbs corn starch dissolved in a quarter cup of cold water. Also, i used cut up breast fillets. Served with wild/brown rice mixture. Will make again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and chop the onion finely.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet, and sauté the onion until translucent.
  3. Add the chicken pieces, turning to lightly brown on both sides.
  4. Add the chicken stock and turn the heat to high.
  5. Add the honey, mustard and black pepper.
  6. Cook until the stock is reduced to a thick sauce.
  7. Reduce the heat, and continue cooking until the chicken browns and the mixture begins to caramelize - usually just a few minutes more.
  8. Turn the chicken to let the other side brown a bit, but remove the pan from the heat if the sauce gets as dark as you want it.
  9. This has a fairly mild mustard flavour; stir in a little more mustard just before serving if you want more bite.
