Recipe: Honey dijon chicken


I’ve never been much of a mustard fan on burgers and whatnot, but I’ve always wanted to try my hand at a dijon-based marinade. Dijon just sounds lovely, and looks lovely, so why wouldn’t it taste lovely too? (It does, for the record.) I played around with flavours for this simple recipe that’s quick to whip up but tastes absolutely wonderful.

Ingredients (for 4 servings):

  • 4 breasts of chicken
  • 1/4 cup of dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • Fresh thyme
  • Black pepper


  1. Mix dijon mustard and honey in a bowl.
  2. Add olive oil and crushed garlic to pan.
  3. Chop onion into slivers and saute for 1-2 minutes in pan on medium heat.
  4. Add chicken to pan and coat both sides with dijon/honey mixture.
  5. Cook chicken for about 7 minutes until there is no pink inside.
  6. Add thyme to pan shortly before taking chicken and onions out to serve.



The whole process takes less than half an hour – but it doesn’t taste like a quickie dinner. I paired the chicken with smashed potatoes and a simple arugula salad with parmesan shavings and balsamic dressing. So easy, so good! And similar ingredients for all three makes the whole thing extra simple. Happy cooking!
