I’ve got two words for ya: Honey. Mustard.
But not just any mustard. Don’t be confused… not all mustards should be considered equal. You wanna use good mustard, and definitely not the yellow kind ya schmear on a burger bun or zig-zag over a hot dog. I mean whole grain, stone ground, natural mustard. Mmm MMM! I love this stuff! Whoever decided to pair it with honey is just plain genius. And I love you.
I have made this recipe a dozen times; whether a quick marinade then on the grill, marinade for a few hours then sear on a grill pan or in the oven… and every single time I make it I wonder how it could possibly be so dang good? This is my no fail, always-a-hit-and-guaranteed-to-turn-out-delicious-every-time recipe!
Having company over? …How about grilled honey mustard chicken for dinner.
Want a quick dinner? …Whip up some Honey Mustard chicken.
Not sure what to make for dinner? …You’re Welcome!
To make the marinade/sauce you will need: Honey, whole grain mustard (hot beer mustard, if you can find it, is reeeeal good!), cayenne pepper, paprika, red chili flakes, garlic, kosher salt and the juice of half a lemon.
Just like a car, I feel you should look at this from all angles, no?
