Sweet, sweet creamy honey mustard sauce, I love you so!
Honey mustard sauce means a lot of different things to me, but mostly what it means is that when I make it, I am going to get to eat something that will be dipped in sauce. And in my life, there are few things better than a meal dipped in sauce.
Let’s take, for example, chicken. I’ve mentioned before that my true feelings for chicken are less than wonderful, but you guys. Some kind of magic shnazzery happens when I take chicken (ahem, the variety that’s been breaded and fried into chicken strips – just leave me alone) and dip it into this pool of honey-gold. It’s the kind of sauce that could smash your chicken-hater ways and turn you into more of a lover.
I mean, a lover of all things dipped in the sauce.
So, yeah, this is a conditional kind of love.
You’ll Need Really Good Honey
Ever since doing our sugar-free experiment, Bjork and I have really become honey snobs. Like, I get kind of picky about my honey. I love raw honey, but I always get a little protective about using my “good” raw honey in recipes where it doesn’t really matter what kind of honey you use. Which means we have at least three types of honey in our sugar-and-baking cabinet at all times – our raw honey, our regular honey (the kind you could use for baking in mass quantities without batting an eye), and something in between.
Raw honey could get a little awkward up in the whisk with this recipe, which is why I chose to go high quality but bypass the raw situation. This Wholesome! honey is organic and golden-delicious, like all the good honeys of the world, and I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love that they are selling these high-quality organic products at my ever-so-convenient Target? Yes. High-quality honey without a trip to the co-op. Life goal: met.
PS. Wholesome sells raw honey, too. 🎉 Get yourself some of that.
Just 5 Minutes and You’re Done
Let’s talk about how this only takes five minutes to make. Or not? No. Let’s not. I’ll just give you the gist of it: IT ONLY TAKES FIVE MINUTES TO MAKE.
And realistically, more like three minutes, but I guess it depends on how long it takes you to find the dijon mustard on that condiment shelf in the fridge? Yoiks. Whatever you do, don’t imagine what my condiment shelf looks like.
What To Use This Sauce On
Do imagine yourself whipping up this dreamy sauce in about three minutes and sitting down to a plateful of something – roasted sweet potatoes, chicken tenders, baked tofu, or a green-y salad – coated in the most perfect consistency and sweet flavor of honey mustard sauce.

Try white wine vinegar here instead!
Just store leftovers of this sauce in a sealed container for up to 5 days in the fridge.
Sounds delicious! This would be great on top of salmon or chicken.
