Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

One delicious recipe that combines the warmth of fall flavors with a spicy kick from Charlie's hot sauce is "Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken." This recipe features a tasty glaze made with honey, Dijon mustard, and hot sauce, and it's perfect for cozy fall evenings. Here's how to make it:


For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Spicy Honey Mustard Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tablespoons Charlie's hot sauce (adjust to your preferred level of spiciness)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For Garnish:

  • Fresh thyme or parsley leaves


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

  3. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts and sear them for 2-3 minutes per side until they are browned.

  4. In a bowl, whisk together honey, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Adjust the amount of hot sauce to your desired level of spiciness.

  5. Pour the spicy honey mustard glaze over the seared chicken breasts in the skillet.

  6. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and is no longer pink in the center. Baste the chicken with the glaze a couple of times during the baking process.

  7. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the skillet from the oven.

  8. Garnish the chicken with fresh thyme or parsley leaves for a pop of color and flavor.

  9. Serve the Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken hot, drizzling extra glaze from the skillet over the top if desired.

This recipe combines the comforting flavors of fall with the heat of hot sauce, making it a perfect dish for a cozy autumn dinner. You can serve it with roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a side of steamed green beans for a complete and satisfying meal. Enjoy!
