Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

This is my go-to dish when I need to make something for my kids. The recipe lacks any exotic ingredients (so I already have everything at home), and a quick marinade seems to work well. Skewering the chicken makes it even more attractive to my youngest kids since they love eating food on a stick. I’m sure the sugar content (from honey) doesn’t hurt either.

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe


  • 1.5 lbs chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 teaspoon Kosher or sea salt


  1. Combine mustard, honey, olive oil, and salt with a whisk. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade to baste the chicken with while grilling
  2. Marinade chicken with the mixture for at least 1 hour.
  3. Heat the grill to 400 degrees (medium-high heat).
  4. Optional: skewer the chicken.
