Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers


Happy Friday! It’s time for another recipe swap! Before I get into that though, I have a funny story. I had first typed up this post over the weekend and (stupidly) wrote about how wonderful the weather was and how excited we were to start grilling again. Fast forward to Tuesday night/Wednesday. Ice storm. What the what?!?!

That said, Mike was such a trooper and grilled this for me so I would be able to post this as planned. I’m just thankful he didn’t get impaled by a falling icicle or tree branch. When is winter going to be over?

I loved that Jen at Becoming Pigzilla used a chardonnay jalapeno mustard, but I have no idea where I would even find something like that. I also don’t think I can justify another jar of mustard in my fridge, taking up very valuable fridge real estate. When I get around to buying more mustard, I’ll have to keep my eye out for more interesting flavors! I ended up using a small jar of sweet & hot mustard that we received a long time ago as part of a gift basket. It was absolutely perfect! I’m hoping to make this again soon… without the nasty weather!

Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers
adapted from Becoming Pigzilla

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup mustard
2 teaspoons curry powder
salt and pepper, to taste
3 – 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 2-inch pieces

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together olive oil, honey, mustard, and curry powder. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place chicken in a large dish and cover with 3/4 of the mustard sauce. Reserve the remaining sauce in an airtight container for serving.
  3. Marinate chicken for 4 – 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Soak skewers for 30 minutes before grilling. Preheat grill to medium heat. Skewer chicken and grill until cooked through, about 12 minutes, turning every 3 – 4 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with remaining sauce.

  1. Yum! I love honey mustard. I think I would be obsessed with these skewers. I am so happy grilling season is here. This looks fabulous!

  2. Funny story…I assigned this recipe thinking it was time for grilling recipes, too! As your Minnesotan neighbor, it seems we’ll never get to that season. We’ll just have to snowblow a path to our grills and make our hubs do the dirty work! The chardonnay jalapeno mustard was from a winery in Sonoma (, which I absolutely loved. But as I said in the post, your favorite kind of mustard would work just fine, and it seems it did! So glad you liked them.

  3. These look great! I love grilling season.

  4. I cannot make these and get them in my mouth fast enough

  5. YUM!! I love skewers, I love chicken, and I love pretty much any and all varieties of mustard!!

  6. At least they look delicious and summery? I can’t believe everyone out west is STILL having winter weather.

  7. These looks positively delicious! I can’t believe the midwest is still dealing with snow, even now. Crazy!
