This easy Grilled Rosemary Honey Mustard Chicken has amazing flavor and is really easy to whip up and toss on the grill. 

I like to do this as a meal prep at the start of the week and toss together the marinade and add my chicken breasts. They can marinate for an hour, or up to a couple of days before you grill them. You can also freeze the chicken in the marinade for up to 3 months. To thaw, move the frozen chicken/marinade to the refrigerator and let thaw for 24 hours. 

Enjoy this epic grilled chicken marinade with grilled vegetables or any other sides. It goes great with just about everything!

    This marinade is delicious. My husband said “Whatever you did to this chicken is so good.” Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Cary

    This chicken is awesome! I’ve gone back to this MANY times! Plan on making it for a entire family dinner tonight! LOVE your blog!!!!

    1. Jessica

      Thanks Cary! It is so nice to hear that!

      And we love this chicken as well — I actually just made it again last week! πŸ™‚

  3. Mandy

    I am so jealous of your kitchen! We own a baby condo with a baby kitchen, which I am VERY, very used to. But still. I dream of BIG and bright some day.

  4. Chiara

    Congrats on your new house in Jacksonville! I really enjoy that area. And thanks for posting so many ass-friendly recipes, it’s always good to find more!

  5. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    LOVE your category “ass friendly.” Wish I had thought of that one. This looks like a good ass-friendly dinner, which is what I’m on the hunt for right now πŸ™‚

    Ok, I can totally relate to the small box kitchen thing. Your new kitchen is wonderful. A bit of advice… I put all kinds of cutesy things (bowls, etc) on top of my cupboards and then decided I’d climb up and move things around. I slipped off the counter and landed on one arm and broke my elbow (this happened a couple of years ago). So BE CAREFUL πŸ˜‰

    1. Jessica

      Thanks Lori πŸ™‚ Ass Friendly is my way of getting around the diet word. Plus it is so much more fun to say!

      And thanks for the heads up! I am so sorry you had to deal with that! Yuck! I broke my arm when I was younger and never want to go through that again. Not fun! Luckily I have a 6’4 husband to play decorator for me!

  6. Dawn

    Welcome to the area! This recipe looks like a great start.

    When I used to put stuff on top of my cabinets I would put white lights and greenery. It was really pretty to turn the lights on when we were entertaining or just for us at night.

  7. The Teacher Cooks

    I love grilled chicken and yours looks delicious. I love Southern Living and don’t know how I missed this recipe.

  8. Laura Flowers

    EEkkkk! Omgosh. I’m glad you are not DEAD! Your kitchen is lovely, now just keep all your doors and windows locked!


  9. Hopie

    Wow, beautiful new kitchen. You’re lucky! And how nice to have a grill! I’m glad you survived the move (and the movers) πŸ™‚

  10. Sharlene

    Congratulations on the successful move (though not yet entirely finished)! The new kitchen looks great. I’m super jealous that you can grill right now because between the blizzards and ice here there’s not a grill in sight πŸ™

  11. Evan @swEEts

    Isn’t it great to go from a small kitchen to a bigger one!? I did that earlier this year! I love getting a little sneak peak into other bloggers kitchens πŸ™‚ Yours is lovely!

  12. Kocinera

    I’m always looking for something new to do with chicken, so this recipe is perfect! All the different layers of flavor sound delicious. Congrats on your new place, too!!

  13. Molly Jean

    I’m loving your new kitchen!! So clean and crisp looking. Did you choose the wall color? It’s very pretty!

    1. Jessica

      Thanks MJ! Yup it was just plain when we moved in. We bought the paint for $12! It is the One Coat Killz paint! Worked like a dream and really only took one coat!

  14. themilkmanswife

    Girl, I hear ya about the movers!! I had similar feelings when we had people doing that for us a couple weeks ago. It just feels WEIRD! I left the house completely and let my husband deal with them. LOL.

    Love the new kitchen and I super jealous of your lovely grilled meal! Everything looks so fresh and yummy. πŸ™‚ We moved out of our old house two weeks ago and we STILL don’t have a place to go in our new city. UGH. Good luck getting settled!!

    1. Jessica

      SO glad I am not the only one! I hate to be one of those judge-y people…but at the same time when you talk about being an ex-con in front of me…what else do you expect? LOL

      I hope you find somewhere soon! That is crazy!

  15. Kerry

    Thanks for stopping by my space. This place, and you, are so lovely! Can’t wait to spend more time poking around. I think this will really upgrade my meal planning!

  16. Suzy

    Sounds delish! And I love the new kitchen! I had to laugh at the “you don’t advertise you killed people..on your face” ha!

  17. Coralie

    You’ve taught me something with that teardrop tattoo story!
    Congratulations on the new kitchen, I hope I get something like that when I move in a couple of weeks…

  18. Cara

    scary! glad to know you made it there and safely though! love the kithen! I am in love with fiestaware pitchers or different colored platters but that’s me!

  19. Joanne

    Congrats on the move! The new place looks beautiful. and yeah…I would have been going to cardiac arrest if someone who had KILLED FOUR PEOPLE was moving my stuff. Maybe whenever I move I’ll have relatives move my stuff for me. You know…the ones who are studying theology or something.

    Those chicken cutlets sound great! Love the simplicity.

  20. laurren

    Hi, Jessica!

    Thank you for the comment on my blog! I’m so excited to check out your blog! It looks awesome and I love your kitchen! It would lovely to have a kitchen this large to cook in. Instead, mine is the size of a closet. : ( boo.

    The boots in my post actually came from the boutique I manage. We have them on sale right now for 40% off. If you really love them,I’m sure we could ship them to you if you wanted to get a pair. They are by Matisse. You might even be able to find them on sale online somewhere.

    Hope you have a great day! : )

  21. The Cooking Teacher

    Congratulations! We just moved too and it’s so crazy. The kitchen is the first thing to setup and get back into! The kitchen looks great – happy cooking :c)

  22. Lainey_Elizabeth

    That chicken is awesome! I have made it before too…delicious! My cabinets are like that and I have put some baskets, wine bottles and serving platters up there…

  23. Roxan

    I love your kitchen! It’s so open and opens directly into the living area. Sigh… I long for a kitchen like that. Seriously my kitchen is so teeny tiny and separated from the rest of the house. I can barely even roll out my yoga mat on the ground (not that I do yoga in there, but just to give you a sense of how small it is)!

    This chicken looks great and I can’t wait to see what other recipes come out of this new kitchen!

  24. Kitten with a Whisk

    I love the color of your kitchen. For the cabinets, I would go to thrift stores or yard sales and pick up some interesting pitchers or vases.

  25. Shannon O'Connell

    I love your new kitchen!!! I also love that you have Criminal Minds fantasies, too! Although, mine usually involve Hotch (I’ve been in love since Dharma & Greg).

    1. Jessica


      The spice racks are not spice racks at all! They are from Ikea! They are actually sold in the bathroom section. They had them in white and in black. And they sell the jars there 4 for $3. And they are actual “Spice Jars”.

  26. Happy When Not Hungry

    I am glad you survived your move (literally)!! Your kitchen looks great and this chicken/rosemary combo looks amazing. I love your header too!!!

  27. Katie

    Your new kitchen looks so awesome!!!! I love it. Jealous – I am still cooking in a tiny little box… πŸ™‚

  28. jenna laughs

    You are too funny. I followed your blog last month and I’ve been enjoying reading your posts ever since! Congratulations on the new, super cute kitchen. Can’t wait to see what you create πŸ™‚

  29. Rivki Locker (Ordinary Blogger)

    Congrats on your move and thanks for stopping by and commenting on my site. I’m so pleased to have found another food blog to follow – especially one with such beautiful photos!
    Whether it’s Tampa or Jacksonville, I am TERRIBLY jealous of anyone who can grill chicken and vegetables in January! I am getting rather tired of roasting, steaming, and sauteeing indoors here in New Jersey. I can’t wait for the spring!
    Good to meet you!
    — Rivki

    1. Jessica

      I am thinking about you while I sit outside on my balcony in the 70 degree weather! LOL πŸ˜‰

      Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself! It is very nice to meet you too!

  30. Three-Cookies

    Glad everything went smoothly. About those guys, here’s another perspective. Its better to have them on your side working for you rather than working against you:) There is a cruder version of this saying but its better if I don’t write it here

  31. Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles

    I absolutely adore your kitchen – it’s so cute!
    It’s also making me very jealous…I live in an on-campus apartment (husband is attending grad school) and it is so plain and boring. I’ll just live vicariously through you, so please keep posting pictures of it! πŸ™‚

  32. DessertForTwo

    Wow, your movers are the kind of guys I cross my fingers and hope not to get! Glad your husband was there to protect you!

    I have similar cabinets with an empty space above. Ideas: display serving platters (cake platters, pretty pasta bowls, etc.) I also put a Christmas cactus on the corner of mine and it drapes down gorgeously as it grows. You could be super cool and lean vintage metal signs against the wall up there? Signs like ‘chicken coop’ or ‘farm stand’ or whatever signs say these days.

    Congrats on your new spacious kitchen!
