Honey mustard chicken bowls are ridiculously delicious. Served with roasted asparagus and jasmine rice, these are super easy to make, super satisfying and make for a great meal-prep dish. 

A good weeknight dinner is just what we need!

This honey mustard chicken is tender and golden, tossed in a honey mustard glaze and served with roasted asparagus and jasmine rice. It’s so satisfying and comes together in 30 minutes!

I live for a meal like that.

You know… I could dip just about anything in honey mustard and be thrilled with life.

I have a grilled honey mustard chicken recipe which we ADORE. It is such a great chicken recipe and I often find myself making that once a week in the summer months. The chicken is incredibly flavorful and tangy and works on many different dishes. 

While this dish has a similar flavor profile, the preparation is completely different.

I use my go-to garlic butter salmon recipe for the inspiration here. Instead of making a simple honey garlic mixture to cook the chicken in, I throw in some dijon. This makes for the best sticky sauce! It’s ridiculously flavorful and so delicious.

Here’s how the whole bowl comes together!

First, I chop up some chicken and season it. I throw it in a cast iron skillet and sear it until it’s golden and charred in some places. 

While that happens, the asparagus goes into the oven to roast. EASY. I usually use olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Maybe a shower of parmesan. Simple, delish flavors really work here.

Once the chicken is browned, I whisk together honey, dijon mustard and water.

YES! That is it. Sounds like a weird combo but when it’s poured in a hot skillet, a fantastic glaze develops. 

The chicken cooks in the sauce for a few minutes. Then I serve everything together!

I like this with jasmine rice. Extra sauce spooned over the rice is just divine.

I love how easy this is and how excellent it tastes. Also love that it’s a great meal prep meal. Leftovers taste just as great the next day, making it perfect for lunch.

Ingredients

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the asparagus on the sheet. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season all over with salt and pepper and garlic powder. Place in the oven to roast for 10 to 15 minutes (or even shorter, if you are using very thin asparagus).
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large cast iron skillet. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Season all over with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet and brown on all sides, cooking for 3 to 4 minutes before flipping and cooking for 3 to 4 minutes more.
  • Whisk together the honey, mustard, water and garlic.
  • Once the chicken is browned, pour the honey mixture into the pan. Toss well. Let it bubble and simmer, toss the chicken often, cooking for 3 to 4 minutes - until the sauce has thickened and coats all the chicken. Top with the sliced green onions.
  • Serve the chicken over rice with the asparagus.
