Serve this with rice, mashed potatoes, noodles, either way spoon that delicious sauce on top and you will fall in love with this just like my family did after I found this recipe and now made several times.


  • 2 lbs - 2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts 
  • 1/4 cup whole grain, coarse mustard
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3-4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion, diced 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 small sprigs rosemary
  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2. In a mixing bowl whisk together coarse mustard, dijon mustard, honey and 2 tsp olive oil. Spray a large enough baking dish with non-stick cooking spray so you do not overcrowd the chicken 
  • 3. In a small skillet, heat remaining 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté 3 -5 minutes then add garlic and sauté 30 seconds longer. Pour into prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides, then set chicken over onion layer in baking dish.
  • 4. Pour mustard mixture evenly over chicken, cover each chicken piece entirely. Lay sprigs of rosemary between chicken breasts, then cover dish with foil. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes then uncover baste the chicken with the sauce and bake until chicken has cooked through, about 15 - 25 minutes longer until chicken is browned. It could be less or more time than that listed depending if using chicken breast or tenderloins. When serving spoon more sauce over chicken as desired.
