Crispy Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe Is a 4-Ingredient Dinner Homerun

Honey and mustard is a classic combination. This easy chicken recipe starts with boneless chicken breasts dipped in creamy honey mustard and breadcrumbs, then quickly fried until super crispy. yum!

There were only two of us, so I just cooked two chicken breasts. Next time I’m going to add a few shakes
ground cayenne pepper to breadcrumbs and honey-mustard sauce. I served this crispy chicken with buttered turnips and green beans with caramelized shallots.

Cuisine: American

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs (I used panko)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter (I used olive oil)

This is how you make it:

  1. Combine 2 tablespoons mustard and 3 tablespoons honey in a small bowl.

  2. Mix the breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard on a plate. (Mixing it with your fingers makes it easier.)

  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken in the honey-mustard mixture and then in the breadcrumbs, pressing down so they stick well.

Remark: I only cooked two chicken breasts but made the full amount of sauce so I removed some before dip the chicken in it and serve on the side to drizzle over the chicken.
