If you love Honey Mustard, you know that it’s more than just a condiment. It’s great as salad dressing, as a marinade, and as a sauce for the three best kinds of chicken: Chicken Nuggets, Chicken Tenders, and my favorite Super Crispy Fried Chicken.
My Honey Mustard recipe is ridiculously easy because it basically has one step. All you have to do is mix everything together in a small bowl.

You can also drizzle your Honey Mustard on pretty much everything in your cookbook, from veggies to fried food, and it’s one of those easy recipes that you’ll want to use over and over again. This Honey Mustard sauce is the perfect addition to your weeknight dinner or fancy party.

VARIATIONS ON HONEY MUSTARD
- Spices: If you want to add a little more zing to your Honey Mustard, try mixing in some cayenne pepper, garlic powder, black pepper, or even a pinch of paprika.
- Whole grain honey mustard: Instead of using dijon mustard, swap it out for whole grain mustard so you get the pop of the pickled mustard seeds in your honey mustard dressing.

- Store: Your homemade Honey Mustard will last you up to 3 weeks in the fridge as long as it is stored in an airtight container.
