Baked Honey Mustard Chicken


  • 7 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 2/3 cup mustard
  • 1/4 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Grease a rectangular glass backing dish (mine is 9″x13″) with a little cooking oil so the chicken doesn’t stick when baking.
  3. Combine all honey, mustard, paprika, parsley, garlic powder, basil, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl.
  4. Using paper towel, pat the chicken breasts to remove any excess moisture from the surface.
  5. Place the chicken breasts into the glass baking dish and pour the honey mustard sauce over top of each piece.
  6. Bake in the oven uncovered for 40 minutes.
  7. Remove the dish from the oven and spoon some of the sauce from inside the dish over the tops of your chicken.
  8. Place the dish of chicken back into the oven and set it to broil for about 5 minutes. This will thicken up the sauce a bit and give the chicken a nice golden colour on top.
  9. Serve honey mustard chicken breasts with a side of rice and veggies or whatever you prefer. 🙂


For even more depth of flavour try marinating the chicken in the sauce ingredients overnight.
