Honey-Mustard Chicken Recipe

Honey-Mustard Chicken Recipe

If my family had their wish, I'd serve chicken on the grill every night. This sweet and tangy glaze is an appealing alternative to traditional tomato-based sauces. —Heidi Holmes, Renton, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Grill: 50 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the pineapple juice, honey, mustard and ginger; bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water; gradually whisk into honey mixture. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Reserve 3/4 cup to serve with chicken if desired.
  • 2. Baste chicken with remaining glaze. Grill, covered, over medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Turn chicken; brush again with glaze. Grill, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until juices run clear. Serve with reserved glaze if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
