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!

    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…
