Honey Mustard Chicken
This recipe has been in the family for several years. It was one of our first posted recipes on Homemade Food Junkie. Kayti finally convinced me it needed a redo and repost so it has another moment in the limelight because her family LOVES it. I turned Honey Mustard Chicken Dinner into a one pot dinner because I love easy and I think you will too. Now it’s all in one skillet from stove to oven to table. Enjoy!
I love feeding my family. It’s especially gratifying when they enjoy the recipes I cook. This recipe quickly passed the family taste test. They devoured it fast and happily. It’s all about the sauce. The honey mustard combo is delicious with the chicken, bacon and veggies.
Honey Mustard Chicken Dinner is a one pot Chicken and veggie dinner with an excellent honey mustard sauce.
Honey Mustard Chicken fills up the family nicely. If you have picky eaters, who turn their noses up at veggies, give this one a try. The sauce is so good they will love it. My Son in Law LOVES this dinner. Even my ‘Not a fan of chicken’ husband enjoyed this meal. He thought he was eating pork chops???
This dinner uses up any veggies I have ready to harvest in our garden or fridge. I prefer carrots, fingerling potatoes and green beans if I have them. I’m going to say the carrots and peppers are really a must. The flavors and texture of carrots and peppers is so perfect with this dinner.

Honey Mustard Chicken Dinner Recipe:
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. Eat it straight out the of the skillet with a nice crusty artisan bread, or Serve over rice or potatoes if you prefer. Enjoy!
If you don’t have an 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. OR you can 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.
I used fresh organic free range chicken tenders this time. This recipe also works great with frozen chicken tenders, chicken thighs or breasts. The cooking time is about the same. Just check the oven the last five minutes to make sure any frozen chicken parts you use are browned.
Honey Mustard Chicken
The honey mustard sauce blends well with many diverse vegetables and enhances the chicken with its piquant flavor. It’s ready to eat in about 45 minutes from first thought to first taste. And I make it all in an ovenproof skillet so there is just one dirty cooking pan and a small bowl to whisk up the sauce.
This easy one skillet meal will be a favorite once you learn it. An easy baked weeknight chicken recipe the whole family will enjoy!
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.

Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
