This Baked Honey Mustard Chicken with Asparagus recipe creates a flavorful and satisfying meal. The sweet and tangy honey mustard glaze perfectly complements the juicy chicken and the fresh, crisp asparagus, making this dish both delicious and visually appealing.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Fresh lemon slices for garnish
  • Optional: Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking dish large enough to accommodate the chicken and asparagus.
  2. Prepare the Honey Mustard Sauce: In a bowl, whisk together honey, Dijon mustard, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  3. Season the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place them in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Apply the Glaze: Brush the honey mustard mixture generously over the chicken breasts, ensuring they are well coated.
  5. Add the Asparagus: Arrange the trimmed asparagus around the chicken in the baking dish. Drizzle the asparagus with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. If desired, you can also brush some of the honey mustard mixture over the asparagus.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.
  7. Broil for Crispiness (Optional): For a more golden and crispy exterior, broil the chicken for an additional 2-3 minutes after it’s cooked through.
  8. Garnish and Serve: Remove from the oven. If desired, garnish with fresh lemon slices and chopped parsley for added flavor and a beautiful presentation.
  9. Rest Before Serving: Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.
