Perfect, perfect, perfect! I can't believe with so few ingredients I've finally found what I was looking for - restaurant quality honey mustard sauce. I love chicken fingers, but can never find a good honey mustard sauce in the grocery store - they all taste terrible. I took a chance on this and am glad I did! Read More

We’re well into Stone Crab Claw season here in SW Florida and these bad boys just cry out for a mustard dipping sauce. There is another recipe on AR for this sauce that I’ve tried and loved but I was in the mood to experiment with something different. Right off the bat I knew this one would be too sweet for our tastes so I reduced the honey by nearly half. Still, Hubs found it a little sweet, tho’ I was fine with it. My problem was that I found this a little heavy on the yellow mustard. Not a bad sauce, but it would be much improved by reducing both the honey and the yellow mustard. Start out with small amounts of each. You can always add more, but you can’t take it out! Read More

Good, but let me make a recommendation. To speed this process up and eliminate the need for overnight refrigeration assemble the ingredients in reverse order and heat up the honey! Honey and lemon first. Microwave on high until honey/lemon is hot and very fluid. Then add mustard and mix. (I reversed the quantities. I like Dijon better, a personal thing) Then mayo and mix well. The residual heat from the honey ends with a slightly warm sauce, but without a 12 hour delay. Read More

I tried this last night after refrigerating a few hours - and it was gross. Tasted like mayo & mustard (which reminds me of potato salad). After that initial tasting I added one more tbsp of honey. Just had some with leftover chicken and it was fantastic! Lesson learned - LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT! Read More

I was making chicken strips and cottage fries for the grandkids. The oldest (7), Austin asked for honey mustard dipping sauce. So we hopped on AR for a quick simple recipe and this was just what we needed. I had almost ½ c. of mayo left in a qt jar so I added what we needed to make it and had Austin add the rest of the ingredients to the jar. Then he shook it for all he was worth for about 2 min. maybe 3. This was his review of your sauce JILLENA. Awesome!! Better then Mc D’s. Keep in mind how important McD’s is to a seven year old. Everyone for the 19 mo old to the 82 yr old liked it also. Read More

Very nice balance of honey/mustard flavor. I didn't have Dijon mustard, so I used all yellow mustard. I don't like to modify recipes the first time that I try them, but I don't keep Dijon on hand and wanted honey mustard with the chicken fingers I was making for dinner. It was good when first made, but I agree with the observation that it improves overnight, so I would recommend that if you want the best flavor, make this a day ahead. Thanks for a great and easy recipe! Read More

Amazing! I have made this dip twice now for chicken wraps and my whole family loves it. My husband doesn't even like mustard, but he loves this dip. I made it exactly as written no changes. We decided to marinade and baste some chicken with this dip as we were grilling. It was awesome! Read More
