Honey mustard sauce can mean many things to me. But mostly, it means that I will get to eat food that is dipped into sauce when I make it. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a meal that has been plunged into sauce.

Take chicken, for instance. You guys know that I have a less-than-positive opinion about chicken. When I dip chicken in honey-gold, it becomes magical. (Ahem, the kind that has been breaded into nuggets and fried – please leave me alone.) This sauce could change your mind about chicken and make you a fan.

Honey is a Must

Bjork and I have become honey snobs since we stopped eating sugar. I’m picky when it comes to honey. I love raw honey, but I’m always a bit protective when it comes to using “good” honey in recipes that don’t care what type of honey is used. We always have three different types of love on hand in our sugar and baking cabinet – raw honey, regular honey (which you can use in large quantities for baking), and something else in between.

This recipe could be a bit awkward with raw honey, so I went for high quality but avoided the basic situation.

This only takes 5 minutes to make. Or not? No. Let’s not. Let me tell you what it is: IT TAKES ONLY FIVE MINUTES.

It’s more likely to take you three minutes. But I suppose it depends on the time it takes for you to locate the condiment shelf where the Dijon mustard is kept in the refrigerator. Yoiks. Imagine my condiment shelf, but don’t do it.

Honey mustard is as easy as whisking your ingredients in a small jar or bowl. This honey mustard is zingy, sweet, and tangy.
