Honey-Mustard Breaded Chicken Recipe

Honey-Mustard Breaded Chicken Recipe

I get bored with the same old chicken, so I came up with this simple recipe. The coating adds fast flavor to tender chicken cooked on the stovetop. —Laura Theofilis, Leonardtown, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and 1 teaspoon of mustard. In another shallow bowl, combine honey and remaining mustard. Dip chicken in honey-mustard mixture, then coat with crumbs.
  • 2. In a nonstick skillet, cook chicken over medium heat in butter for 4-6 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.

"I tried this coating on fresh Alaskan Cod I got from Costco. Huge pieces of Cod. Can't wait to do the chicken recipe."

"For those of you that are having trouble with the breading sticking to the chicken; place dipped and battered chicken in the freezer for 15 min and then straight to the hot skillet. This works great for shrimp and mushrooms. I could never get the batter to stay on mushrooms till I tried the freezer trick.

I used equal parts Dijon, honey and mayo for my sauce and I loved this dish that way."

"Excellent recipe. My husband and I really liked it. I made one change -- instead of butter, I used coconut oil. I will definitely make this recipe for company."

"Very good. I have made it with bottled ranch dressing when I didn't have an envelope and it turned out just as good (I used about 1T of bottled ranch). I've found with any recipe that you pan fry that if you put it in the fridge for about 15 mins, the coating sticks better while cooking."

"The coating doesn't stay on and it's a bit mushy. If I used oil instead of butter so I could get the pan real hot then it probably would be better. If I try it again, I will put the butter in the sauce and bake it. The flavor was fine though."

"Would have liked it to turn out a little more crispy, slightly "mushy." Probably just need to perfect the cooking based off of my skillet/heat. Will make again as it was nice taste and good change of pace."
