Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Marinate the chicken. Combine the Zesty Gold sauce and honey OR all the individual ingredients for the homemade sauce in a mixing bowl. Whisk until everything is thoroughly combined. Pour the marinade over the chicken breasts in a gallon zip-top bag and press out any excess air. Massage to ensure all the chicken is coated. Refrigerate for 4-8 hours.
  • Preheat your grill. Set up your grill for two-zone cooking (meaning one hot, direct side and one cool, indirect side), with the overall temperature sitting around 350-400 degrees F.
  • Cook the chicken. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the indirect heat side of your grill, close the lid, and cook for 6-7 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes.
  • Sear the chicken. Move the chicken breasts over to the direct heat side of the grill and sear for 2-3 minutes per side (with the lid up), or until the internal temperature of your breasts reads 160 degrees F.
  • Rest the chicken. Place the chicken on your platter and tent with foil. This process will finish the cooking process and keep your chicken juicy.
  • Enjoy. Serve hot for dinner and use the leftovers for delicious sandwiches, wraps, or salads.
