Remember when I told you that before my blog, I cooked and created new recipes multiple times a week and categorized them in huge binders (Exhibit A)? Well, I’ve been having a hankering for Honey Mustard Chicken (does anyone really say hankering? it just rolls off my typing fingers but I can only wish it would so effortlessly roll off my tongue. I wish I was as cool as that. Anywhooooooo…), I remembered I had concocted an an amazing Cajun Honey Mustard Chicken way back in the day that wasn’t too sweet, wasn’t too tangy, but just right, so I unearthed my neglected binder, tried not to get too distracted with the pages and pages of yumminess, and after a few growing pains, this little number was born.
It was a delicious reunion. Like crazy delicious. Like you haven’t tasted honey mustard chicken until you taste this honey mustard chicken!
The chicken is marinated in honey, yellow and Dijon mustard, orange juice, brown sugar, and Cajun spices so it seeps up all that flavor AND also gets smothered in the most tantalizing Creamy Cajun Honey Mustard Sauce. The Sauce is simply the leftover unused marinade that you separate out from your chicken marinade and blend it with cilantro, sour cream and mayo. Its creamy, sweet and spicy deliciousness will leave you weak at the knees. A good kind of weak. A weak that means I love you so much I must have more!
This Cajun Honey Mustard Chicken can be grilled or cooked on the stovetop, marinated for 1 hours up to overnight – so no matter your time situation, you can always devour Cajun Honey Mustard Chicken. Always and forever.
This chicken is delicioso accompanied with forkfuls of rice and especially with rice AND mangoes (seriously, this combo is AH-mazing!), and even more amazing are these Cajun Honey Mustard Chicken Bowls. Coming soon…
