Ready for another amazing grilled chicken recipe? This scrumptiously delicious honey dijon chicken is another favorite “cheater” freezer recipe–easy, delicious, practically mess-free, and freezer + grill friendly. What more do you need?

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the marinade & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated at room temperature. And don’t let the simplicity of the recipe fool you–this is one moist & flavorful meal that your family will absolutely go crazy for!

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.

A few simple ingredients are all you need to prepare Easy Honey Dijon Chicken for a quick meal.

Here is what you need:
