Honey Mustard Chicken and Rice Ingredients Flat Lay

This recipe you can use Chicken Breasts or Chicken Tenders. I use Chicken Breasts and cut them up in small tender size pieces for a quick and easy cooking time

Honey Mustard Marinade for Honey Mustard Chicken and rice

Mixing the ingredients in a bowl allows you to test the Honey Mustard marinade and add extra sweetness if needed. It’s a personal preference.

Sliced Chicken Breasts

Why Slice Chicken Breasts?

For this recipe of Honey Mustard Chicken and Rice to cook perfectly, the chicken breasts must be sliced into a tender size portion. Because the Chicken is cooking right along with the Rice, it’s super important to make sure that everything is cooked and the rice isn’t over cooked.

Rice in Instant Pot

Carefully sprinkle rice into pot on top of sliced Chicken. Make sure to evenly sprinkle the rice or you will end up with spots of rice that aren’t cooked as much as other areas.

What does Honey Mustard Chicken and Rice Taste Like?

I personally feel that this marinade gives a perfect balance of sweet to tangy. The rice is my favorite that I just eat right up. The honey will make this recipe sweet and the dijon mustard gives it the tang that you need to balance well for a dinner recipe.

This recipe can of course be baked as well, however you will need to add more liquid to a tradition 2:1 ratio . Two parts liquid to 1 part rice.
