This recipe is a crowd pleaser if I’ve ever seen one. I just love the bright, happy color of these chicken skewers.

They really couldn’t be easier to make. You probably already have everything on hand already.

Everyone loves honey mustard, right? Well… maybe not. It is pretty popular. I made sure that the mustard isn’t too strong (I just used standard yellow mustard) instead of Dijon or something similar. I didn’t add a ton of honey… just enough to give that honey mustard sweetness without it being cloying. It also helps with making those tasty grill marks. 😉

I marinated this for about 2.5 hours. I intended to leave it only for an hour, but I ended up cleaning the house and doing everything except cooking during that marinating period. I’d marinate this for at least an hour, but the flavor definitely comes through more boldly the longer you leave it.

You can serve these with anything. A salad, potatoes, potato salad… you name it. They’ll be gobbled up quickly. Food on a stick is just more fun, don’t you think?

Naturally, we grill year-round (yes, my husband stands out there when it’s -25C to grill my steak to perfection), but I am so excited that grilling season is basically upon us.

I can’t wait to be able to sit outside without freezing my butt off. We’re not quite at that point yet here, but the grass is slowly getting greener. We’ve been getting plenty of rain, so that should help!

We ate these too quickly to test the viability of leftovers, but I think that a cold leftover chicken skewer would be perfect in a quick salad. That’s what warm weather is all about!

It’s time to dust that BBQ off, friends.

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers

Succulent chicken skewers with an easy honey mustard marinade.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Marinade time: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • If you're using wooden skewers, it's a good idea to soak them for at least half an hour to help prevent splintering and burning.
  • Cut the chicken into fairly small pieces and trim off any fat/gristle. Place it in a medium-to-large bowl.
  • Add the mustard, honey, garlic, and salt & pepper to a bowl (or just stir it right into the measuring cup you used to measure the mustard in). Stir until smooth. Pour it over the chicken, and give the chicken a stir so it's coated.
  • Refrigerate the chicken for at least an hour, preferably 2+ hours. If marinating overnight, cover it with plastic wrap.
  • Once your chicken is done marinating, oil your BBQ/grill's grate and pre-heat it to high. Thread the chicken onto skewers (I had 5 skewers). Pour any extra marinade over them.
  • Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook the chicken for about 15 minutes total time (or until it's cooked through), turning every few minutes. We used our gas BBQ, cooking the chicken with the lid down.


  • As with any BBQ/grill/grill pan, use your best judgment on what heat/how long to cook these for. My instructions should be taken as a guideline only.
  • Serves 2-4 depending on what else you serve with these grilled chicken skewers.

    i was tempted to ate this recipe because the store showing 90 cal/200 grams.. unknowingly it was infused with honey which is totally out for KETO diet :'( although the taste is superbbbb hahahaha #NoToCarbo

    1. Natasha says:

      Hmm that’s too bad… I could never do keto haha. Everything in moderation I say šŸ˜‰

  2. Stephanie says:

    Can these be made ahead of time and Frozen for a camping trip

    1. Natasha says:

      I think that should be fine. They may be a little less “saucy”, but I think they will still taste good. šŸ™‚

  3. Joanne | No Plate Like Home says:

    Natasha, these look great. They’d be an easy recipe to make for football games. They look yummy!

    1. Natasha says:

      Thank you!! šŸ˜Š

  4. Katie says:

    If I were to roast these in the oven, how long and at what temp would I need to cook it at? This looks delicious!!

    1. Natasha says:

      Thanks, Katie! Hmmm… I don’t really feel comfortable guessing on a recipe like this since under-cooked chicken can be very, very bad. I only ever grilled these, and I have never made skewers in the oven. With that said… I am thinking that if you were to do it in the oven, you probably would want to broil them for a few minutes at the end to get that nice char. I just Googled some recipes for “baked chicken skewers”, and I see a variety of oven temperatures and cooking times. Maybe try 400F for at least 20-25 minutes, check how cooked they are, then go from there? Be sure to use a meat thermometer and make sure it reads 165F in the centre of the skewer. And it also depends on the size of the chicken pieces, right. Let me know how it goes!! Hope you enjoy the recipe. šŸ™‚

  8. Natasha's Sister says:

    Can you do a veggie BBQ recipe instead?

    1. Natasha says:


      1. Mister Goat says:

        So what exactly makes a vegetarian version of this recipe not possible?

        1. Natasha says:

          My desire to make it. šŸ˜‰
