Stone Floor Mustard:  mustard often made with the warmer brown or black mustard seeds like Dijon mustard however the seeds are solely partially floor down, leaving some entire, to create a thick paste. Stone Floor mustard is usually strong, sharp taste.

There are lots of totally different mixtures for honey mustard however my favourite is a fast whisking of:

  • 1/Three cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Every sort of mustard provides its personal different mustard aptitude for multi-dimensional taste.  In case you style the Honey Mustard Sauce simply by itself, it’d style a bit candy, however when it envelops the hen bursting with spices, it turns into a mesmerizing candy and tangy combo.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN JUICY?

Once we assume juicy hen, we often assume juicy thighs – BUT you possibly can rework your hen breasts into the JUICIEST a part of the hen with a 15 minute brine!

You’re in all probability acquainted with brining a turkey, (and I all the time brine all my pork tenderloin), however brining hen breasts will change your life!  As an alternative of dry, robust hen, brining produces completely tender, juicy hen, each single time with out having to prep and plan forward with a marinade.

top view of two plates of honey mustard chicken with potatoes and green beans

To brine hen, all you do is combine kosher salt with heat water and add your hen for 15-30 minutes.  The salt will increase the moisture capability of the hen by breaking down the proteins to allow them to not contract when cooking.  This implies much less water might be squeezed out and misplaced, leading to juicier hen.   One other plus of brining is the hen sits at room temperature which makes for extra even cooking. Profitable!

Only a fast observe about brining – Do NOT use desk salt in your brining answer, solely kosher salt.  Desk salt will make your hen too salty.

Okay, now that you understand how to make the juiciest hen are you able to make the juiciest Honey Mustard Chicken of your life?!
