Honey Mustard Chicken

This post may contain affiliate sales links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Sweet, slightly tangy, buttery, and addicting, with one taste this Crockpot Honey Mustard Chicken will be your new favorite dinner. Similar to my Baked Honey Mustard Chicken, but made in a slow cooker.

Honey Mustard Chicken

Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

While you can buy a bottle of honey mustard, I much prefer making this at home with a few simple (but delicious!) ingredients. It’s so tasty cooked low and slow in the crockpot with some chicken. Here are the basic ingredients:

  • Onion and Garlic – two basic but powerful ingredients in terms of flavor!
  • Dijon Mustard and Honey – this is where the sweet tangy flavor comes from. If you don’t have Dijon mustard, regular yellow mustard is a good substitute. Or feel free to experiment with any specialty mustard or honey.
  • Salted Butter – I recommend using butter and not subbing it out for oil because the oil tends to make it a bit greasy while the butter is perfect for flavor and sauce consistency.
  • Fresh Rosemary – I use rosemary sprigs that I later take out, however, if dried rosemary is all you have, go for it!

How to Make Honey Mustard Chicken

This slow cooker version of Honey Mustard Chicken has got to be the easiest dinner ever! Prepare ahead of time and then make some rice or get some sandwich rolls ready. For full details see the recipe card down below.

  1. Place all ingredients into the crockpot and cook until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Remove rosemary sprigs.
  3. Remove chicken and shred, then add it back into the sauce. Sprinkle on some chopped chives for a garnish and serve warm!

How Long to Cook Honey Mustard Chicken

Most crockpots have a ‘high’ setting, a ‘low’ setting, and a ‘keep warm’ setting. If you are confused at all here is how long to cook Honey Mustard chicken on low or high:

  • If your crockpot is on high cook for 3-4 hours.
  • If your crockpot is on low cook for 7-8 hours.

Freezing Instructions

Now, this is considered a freezer-meal, meaning that you can prep everything ahead of time and freeze it! Then when you are ready to make it, thaw the frozen ingredients and place them into your crockpot to cook away. Freeze up to 3 months.

    I saved this recipe several years ago but never made it. Tried it for the first time today and it was a huge hit! Doubled the recipe but otherwise followed it exactly. Glad I held on to it. Will definitely make again!

    This was a really great recipe I had 2 lbs of chicken thighs so I had to double the recipe and I didn’t have enough honey so i used Molasses man it turned out great DELICIOUS!!! MY husband said you can make this again!! And I will!! it’s a keeper!! It’s even better than barbeque sauce in my opinion. We had left overs I even put the meat on top of my salad it was so good. YUMMY!!
    thanks for sharing this recipe I will share it too or should I keep it as my secret ? lol

    I’ve made this many times , so delicious. If I don’t have fresh rosemary I use fresh thyme, it’s very good too . Great recipe!

    I love all your recipes, but I don’t have a slow cooker. I do have a pressure cooker and a very old crock pot. Unfortunately, I don’t have room for another appliance. This sounds like a great recipe; can it be made in either of these

    This was great! I made a double batch, but I only had 1/2 c. of honey, so I glugged in some maple syrup to taste. I think I used less honey/syrup than called for (maybe 1/2 – 2/3 as sweet). I swapped in whole-grain dijon for half the mustard, using smooth dijon for the rest. I also used dried rosemary, because that’s all I had.

    Rather than using a slow cooker, I pressure-cooked this in my Instant Pot for 10 minutes on high. After removing and shredding the chicken, I added some cornstarch slurry to the sauce to thicken it up bit.

    We’ve eaten this on sandwiches, in tacos, and on a brown rice bowl. I’ll definite be making it again 🙂

    This dish is on our normal rotation – because my 5yo inhales it! I just tell him it’s honey chicken because if I utter the word mustard he wouldn’t have touched it!

    I make this chicken to go with rice for my hockey billet before every hockey game as his pre-game meal. It’s the only thing he wants before a game! So this recipe happens in my house 2-3 times per week, for 8months of the year. My daughter now calls it “Shane’s chicken”
    I love it because it’s easy and I can make it in advance. Unfortunately I’m now always available to have his pre game ready at 3pm, so this recipe I can start it and then he can eat right before he leaves for the game. Thank you!

    What size slow cooker did you use? I’m wondering if this will fit in my 2 QT or if I have to break out my 6 QT? Thanks!

    Sounds really good. I am a hot head so I will add some of my roasted cayenne hot sauce to the cooking process. Thanks for the recipe.

    This looks tasty, however when you read the post along with the recipe iy looks like there should be credit given to someone else, and I wasn’t able to find that here, which is disappointing.
