Rosemary Honey Mustard Chicken

When you look at the ingredients used you will see that I used dijon mustard. What is dijon mustard and what’s the difference between different mustards?

Mustard comes from ground mustard seeds that have been mixed with a liquid to make a hot paste.


Different mustards come from mixing different seeds with different liquids. The level of hotness is directly related to the type of seed used. The yellow mustard seeds are the mildest while the black mustard seeds are hotter. The more acidic liquid used the longer the mustard will last with the hot taste, so ones that are made with vinegar will last longer than those that are made with water.


Yellow mustard:

Is the most common. Made from yellow mustard seeds with water and vinegar and a few other spices so it has a sharp but mild mustard taste. 


Dijon mustard:

Originally made from brown mustard seeds with an acidic juice from unripe grapes but now it is more commonly made with white wine giving this mustard a hotter flavour than yellow mustard. 


Spicy brown mustard:

Made from black mustard seeds with less acidic liquad and more water to give a much more pronounced heat flavour. 



  • 4-5 Chicken breasts, diced

  • ½ cup Dijon mustard

  • 1/3 cup Honey

  • 2 pinches Rosemary

  • 1 pinch Cayenne pepper



  1. Cook chicken breast in an oil sprayed pan.

  2. While the chicken is cooking, mix together the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

  3. Just before the chicken is done pour the honey mustard mixture over the chicken and cover until the chicken is completely cooked.

  4. Serve on top of rice with a side of vegetables or a salad and enjoy! :)
