Where has this honey mustard sauce been all my life?! It is ridiculously good and is the perfect topping for juicy chicken thighs. The honey mustard marinade takes less than 5 minutes to throw together and is amazing! It goes perfectly with the baked chicken thighs. All you need is 8 ingredients to make this dish! Most of which you already have in your pantry. This recipe makes 8 chicken thighs so you’ll have plenty of leftovers! This is the perfect recipe for meal prepping.

Ingredients

  • Chicken Thighs (I love using bone in skin on chicken thighs however boneless chicken thighs or breast can be substituted. The cooking time will be a lot shorter as well.)
  • Honey
  • Dijon mustard
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Salt + Pepper

How to make Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Start by combining honey, dijon mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a medium bowl, set aside. Add chicken thighs to a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Brush the honey mustard sauce evenly onto the chicken. Bake until the chicken reaches 175 degrees, about 30-40 minutes. To get the nice crispy skin on top I like to broil the chicken after it’s baked. Turn the broiler on high and cook until the skin gets browned and crispy, 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy!

  • One can never have enough chicken recipes. Never, Especially when they look this good! Loving the flavors and that crispy skin!

  • Keilah

    Made this last night for my meal prep for the week. Can I just say that this is one of the best chicken recipes I’ve ever had?!?
    I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs just to make it a little easier for me and instead of brushing the sauce on the chicken, I marinated it for about two hours while I cooked everything else for the meal prep and then off it went into the oven. Just moving it into my containers for the week got me super excited for it but when I actually ate it today, I was blown away! Super flavorful and moist! Perfect option for meal prepping or eating it right away. Definitely adding it to my normal rotation 🙂

  • Hi Keilah!

    I am so glad you loved it!! It is one of my favorite chicken recipes too!

    Thanks!

    If you use a jar of Maile Honey Dijon Mustard, you can skip the other ingredients.

    Put the thighs skin side up in a pan lined with foil and a little olive oil so things don’t stick. Sprinkle some seasoned salt on top of each thigh and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and set the oven to broil. Spoon (I use a lot, like half the jar) of honey mustard on thigh and broil until brown on top. Turn each thigh over and do the same. That’s it. I let them sit a few minutes to absorb the juices. Is also good with skinless thighs, but you don’t get the crispy chicken skin.

    Best chicken ever.
