Honey Mustard Maple Chicken. What can I say? It’s easy, delicious and a dump recipe meal! Make up two or three or five ahead of time and you’ll have freezer prep meals for days, just waiting for the oven. The guys love it and I more than love it.

What could be better than a recipe that tastes amazing and sits in the freezer until you make it? Well, maybe someone else cooking it….but I’ll take this recipe over spending hours making dinner any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

MAKING HONEY MAPLE MUSTARD CHICKEN DUMP RECIPE

You’ll need these five ingredients –

Baked up tender and juicy, this 4 ingredient Honey Maple Mustard Chicken freezer dump recipe is a flavorful family favorite.
  1. Start with about 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken , or about 3 pounds of bone-in. Trim off any excess fat and cut the chicken into whatever size pieces you like.
  2. If you are cooking up breasts, slicing them in half lengthwise will cook a lot faster and get exposed to more of the tasty marinade.
  3. Put the chicken in a plastic freezer bag (or freezer-safe container). Dump in the honey, maple syrup, mustard and tapioca right on top of the chicken. Then label the bag, seal and store in the freezer until you want to serve it. It’s that easy!

COOKING THE HONEY MAPLE CHICKEN

It only takes a minute to get this meal ready to bake. Just be sure to thaw the chicken in the refrigerator or in the microwave first. Otherwise it will take forever to cook, with the outside of the meat totally dried out before the center is done.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Dump the entire contents of the bag into a greased 3 quart baking dish. Spread the chicken into a single layer.
  2. Bake for 50 minutes. Baste the chicken occasionally with the tasty marinade to keep it moist and juicy. You know it’s starting to get done when the house smells heavenly from the bubbling maple syrup.
  3. The chicken is done when a meat thermometer reads 165° at the thickest part of the chicken.
  4. Let the pan sit a few minutes and baste again right before serving. Trust me, you don’t want to leave any of that sauce in the pan.

Boneless vs Bone-in Chicken Substitution

This recipe is amazing whether you are using boneless, skinless chicken or bone-in. For the best results, I recommend using skinless chicken for this recipe.But if you love that crispy skin, then by all means leave it on! I used 3 large breast pieces and cut them in half to make 6 servings.

You will need about 3-1/2 pounds of bone-in, skin-on chicken to equal the meat of 2 pounds of boneless chicken. The bones account for roughly 25% of the weight and the skin about 18% of the weight.
