Honey Mustard Glazed Grilled Chicken

Time: 25 minutes – Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, and plus more for the grill
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (6 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Meat tenderizer or rolling pin
  • Tongs
  • Grill for stovetop
  • Two small bowls
  • Pastry/basting brush
  • Large plastic bag to pound chicken


  1. Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat in microwave until melted then stir in honey, dijon mustard, olive oil, and lemon juice.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add half of the honey mustard mixture to a second bowl.
  3. Preheat a grill to 425 degrees and pound thicker parts of chicken breasts in a plastic bag so they’re an even thickness and season both sides with salt and pepper, and brush grill grates lightly with oil.
  4. Grill chicken 5 minutes then brush top and with honey mustard glaze (reserving 2nd bowl of glaze for the end).
  5. Flip chicken to the opposite side, and brush the second side with honey mustard glaze and continue to grill until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes longer (center must register 165 on an instant-read thermometer).
  6. Brush both sides of chicken with remaining glaze from the second bowl and then let rest on a plate several minutes before serving and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
