Honey-Mustard Chicken Sandwiches

Written by , Posted in Condiments, Lunch, Meat, Poultry, Sandwiches, Sauces

Some good friends of ours moved to Minnesota last week. Sad for us, happy for them. I helped them pack their worldly possessions into two shipping crates, and before leaving, she emptied most of the contents of her fridge into 3 grocery bags. I brought them home, and our fridge is now overflowing with condiments.

We have 2 or 3 of a few things, but I didn’t want to throw the extras out, because we have a hard time throwing out food. As I was standing and staring at the sea of ketchup and mayo, ideas started popping into my head about how to use things, in creative ways, to give myself a little more fridge space!

Here are some of my ideas:

Ketchup: Meatloaf, BBQ sauce, burgers.

A1 Steak Sauce and Mayo: Mix them together to make a mayo for roast beef sandwiches (a great way to use leftover roast beef) or burgers. Meatloaf.

Mayo: Ranch dressing, Blue cheese dressing.

Sun Dried Tomatoes: On pizza, in pasta, with chicken, on a crostini.

Pickles: I read in my latest issue of Food Network Magazine that pickle juice is becoming trendy. I usually just eat pickles with a sandwich, but, I wonder if they would be good with some parmesan and olive oil on a crostini. I’ve seen a recipe for chicken with pickles (haven’t tried it, but am curious about it). What about a pickle coleslaw (pickles, cabbage, shredded carrots, creamy or vinegar dressing)? I love pickles or pickle relish in tuna, but that’s kinda standard, at least in our house.

Chili Sauce: Thai Chicken with Peanuts and Chives, Stir fry.

Mustard (one of mine, I started getting inspired by everything in the fridge): Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwiches.

Soy Sauce (also mine): Soy Ginger Chicken with Sesame Seeds.

These are just a few ideas, off the top of my head.

Happy Eating!

Author: Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine
Prep time: 3 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 18 mins

Inspired by the contents of a friend’s fridge when she moved to Minnesota, I made this sandwich with common condiments found in most kitchens: mustard and honey.
  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1 T Olive oil
  • 2 T Spicy brown mustard
  • 1 T Honey
  • 4-6 tomato slices
  • 2 pieces of lettuce (or a few, if small)
  • 2 Hamburger buns, or a baguette (sliced), or 4 slices french bread
  • Mayo (opt.)
  • Salt
  • 1/4 C Water
  • 1 T Cornstarch
  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and add to pan. Cook, flipping once, about 7 minutes/side, or until internal temperature reaches 170 F.
  2. Whisk water, cornstarch, mustard and honey.
  3. Remove chicken from pan. Pour honey-mustard mixture into pan and whisk. Add chicken. Pull chicken apart with forks (if you want to) and mix around in sauce.
  4. Assemble sandwich with mayo, chicken, lettuce and tomato.
  5. Great with potato chips (I made homemade, but store bought would be great too!).
