Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken

When I was a newly wed, my husband emailed me a recipe titled “The Best Chicken You’ll Ever Eat”.  It was a recipe for baked honey mustard chicken.  Sadly, I turned my nose up at the recipe and never made it.  I’ve since expanded my taste bud repertoire and enjoy a larger variety of flavors.  That emailed recipe, that has been long lost, was my inspiration for this instant pot recipe.

BRIANNAS Dijon Honey Mustard

The base for this recipe is BRIANNAS Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing.  I am no stranger to BRIANNAS salad dressings – their poppyseed dressing is hands down my favorite dressing of all time.  This past spring I was able to meet them at Expo West and try some of their new flavors.  I was blown away by how delicious they all were.  So, when I was given the opportunity to partner with them I jumped at the chance.  When I tasted this dressing I knew it was a perfect fit for the honey mustard chicken recipe that was still haunting me.

Instant Pot To The Rescue

I decided to make this recipe in my mini 3 qt Instant Pot because I knew it would make the chicken tender and I knew I could create a delicious sauce without dirtying another dish.

When I served up this meal to my husband, he devoured it and asked if there was any more sauce.  That BRIANNAS dressing did not disappoint! He kept saying how good it was and ate until the bowl was empty.  That’s always a good sign.

This is a perfect weeknight dinner because you’re done in about 30 minutes!  I love the simplicity, yet bold flavor this meal delivers.  For a step by step – check out my video below.

  1. I’m making this for General Conference sunday dinner. So excited! It doesn’t say, but should I cook this on high pressure or low pressure in my instant pot?
