  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons smooth Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt to season
  • 1.5 – 2 lbs. skinless and boneless chicken thighs or chicken breasts I used chicken thighs


  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients (honey through salt). Pour half the marinade into a large zip-top bag and add chicken to the bag. If time allows, place bag of chicken in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  • Set aside the reserved marinade to use as a dressing later.
  • Heat a nonstick pan, grill pan, or outdoor grill over medium heat with about a teaspoon of oil and sear or grill chicken on each side until golden, crispy and cooked through (about 5 minutes per side for chicken thighs).
  • Serve chicken with reserved sauce over salad, zucchini noodles, rice, pasta, or with a crusty piece of bread!
