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.
Here is what you need:1/2 large sweet onion 3-4 cloves garlic 1/2 cup olive oil 1/2 cup dijon mustard 1/2 cup honey 2 teaspoons seasoned salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional) 3.5-4 pounds boneless chicken
Step 1: Mince onion.
Step 2: Mince or crush garlic in garlic press.
Step 3: Whisk together olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, salt, pepper, onions, garlic, and parsley, then divide into 2 1-gallon freezer bags. (If freezing, be sure to label bags ahead of time.)
Step 4: Divide chicken into two bags of marinade; let marinate for at least 30 minutes or longer, or press out air from bag and freeze.
Step 5: Thaw if frozen. Grill 6-8 minutes per side, basting with additional marinade, if desired.

We made this for dinner tonight. It was AMAZING. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! My 6-year-old ate fourths. FOURTHS!!! I’ve NEVER seen him eat so much food! Can’t wait to try the other freezer meals you’ve shared. We went for gold this weekend and bagged 20 meals!

This looks rockin’! I have a hard time coming up with another thing to grill for dinner each night in the summer. Thanks for giving me a great dish to put into rotation!
I will sure test it soon ! Both your coconut-lime chicken and your slowcooker pot roast are now favorites in our house.
One of my favorite ways to eat chicken, Ruth! Pinning.
