Crispy Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe Is a 4-Ingredient Dinner Homerun

Honey and mustard is a classic combination. This easy chicken recipe starts with boneless chicken breasts that are dipped in creamy honey mustard and breadcrumbs then quickly pan-fried until super crispy. Yum!

There was only two of us, so I just cooked two chicken breasts. Next time I'm going to add a few shakes of ground cayenne pepper to the breadcrumbs and honey-mustard sauce. I served this crispy chicken with buttered turnips and green beans with caramelized shallots.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs (I used panko)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter (I used olive oil)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine 2 tablespoons mustard and 3 tablespoons honey in a small bowl.
  2. Combine the breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard on a plate. (Using your fingers to mix it together makes it easier.)
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken into the honey-mustard mixture and then into the breadcrumbs, pressing so they stick well.
  4. Heat the olive oil or butter in a large skillet. Add the chicken and cook until well browned on the first time, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Flip the chicken over and continue to cook until golden and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Note: I only cooked two chicken breasts but made the full amount of sauce, so I removed some before dipping the chicken into it and served it on the side to drizzle over the chicken.

Does recipe need cayenne pepper, or no?
Donna John
Cayenne pepper is always your call. If you like a bit of spice, add it!
Tasty and quick. The hubs really liked it and it’s impossible to get him to eat chicken. Thank you! I had everything at home without a billion ingredients I had to search for.

So happy ya'll enjoyed it!! JoanieMo
Would the seasoned bread crumbs take away from the honey mustard flavoring?
Donna John
It would add more herb flavoring to it if you used Italian. I used plain panko, so not 100 percent sure how much it would affect the flavor.
Elaine Armstrong
Is it possible to bake this instead? I have trouble keeping the coating on when pan frying.
Donna John
You could bake it. I would put them into a baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray (I like to use olive oil cooking spray) I would lightly mist the tops of them, too. 375 degrees F for about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on thickness.
Miluse Dzurkova
Hi how much F is the chicken done
Donna John
Chicken is done at 165 degrees F.
