KID FAVORITE ALERT.
This is a kid favorite. It’s chicken. It’s dippable. It’s yellow. And it’s delicious.
In this recipe, I’ve added a touch of vinegar into the marinade and the reason for that is to cut down on the chicken-y flavor. Sometimes baked chicken has a chicken-y flavor that is just too chicken-y, so I add vinegar to cut that down. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, ignore me. If you do, try adding a splash of vinegar to your chicken marinades.)
Anywho…simple marinade and sauce that goes onto the chicken while it’s baking. AND YUMMMMMMM is what you’ll pull out of the oven.
If you kids are “dippers,” and have to dip their chicken into something. I’d have them dip into honey mustard sauce (for the fullest possible honey mustard chicken!) or even ketchup. (Note: do NOT use the same sauce that you used to marinate. Discard unused marinade!)
For homemade honey mustard dipping sauce, I’d just do 1:1 honey:mustard, whisked together. Super simple.
