Honey Dijon Chicken – a healthy moist chicken cutlet that is coated with a honey dijon sauce. Ready in minutes, and great for any night of the week.
Are you always trying to come up with new chicken recipes? I know I am. Sheet Pan Chicken with Roasted Potatoes in one of my go to recipes, but sometimes you just want to mix it up. My husband isn’t always a huge fan of “just a piece of chicken” for dinner. He would must rather have Peanut Chicken with Rice, where there is a lot more going on.
So I am always trying to come up with new chicken recipes that can please my whole family. As long as I can have a delicious sauce and the chicken isn’t dry, I can usually win my husband over. He is a huge fan of pork though, and these Roast Pork Chops look like a must try as well.
I served this Honey Dijon Chicken with roasted green beans with sesame and garlic. It was such a quick and easy meal to make. The beans are done in 10 minutes, and the chicken takes about 15. You can have a complete, healthy dinner on the table any night of the week! Chicken Detox Soup is another great way to get a healthy dinner on the table you know your family is going to eat.
I used chicken cutlets for this, so that the chicken would cook quickly. You could use any cut of chicken you want. Cutting the larger chicken breasts in half to make cutlet, works really well. And chicken breasts are on sale quite often, so it is budget friendly to go that route as well. Make sure you stock up on lots of chicken, so you can try this Mushroom Chicken as well!
Honey Dijon Chicken is just a few ingredients. The sauce is made of honey, Dijon mustard, a little oil, salt and pepper. Then you cook. Simple as that. Chances are you have everything you need on hand to make this tonight! Serve with Pan Charred Asparagus or whatever vegetable is in season.

My husband is the same about chicken. He always needs a sauce. But question? Where does the sauce come in play with this recipe? You dip the chicken in the sauce then remove and fry in a skillet, right? Where’s said “sauce”? It sounds good, but just making sure I’m reading it correctly. Thanks!
Erin S says
The mixture you dip it in is thick, and as the chicken cooks in it, it makes a sauce that coats the chicken. Sometimes I double the sauce mixture so I can add a little more to the pan at the end to make sure the chicken really is saucey.
Thanks for the quick response! I was just confused on the dipping the chicken into the mixture then cooking part. How the sauce was coming together wasn’t making sense. Thank you for clarifying. I’m totally tripling it cuz we just like sauce that much
