As I searched my kitchen for the perfect sauce to dip my homemade baked chicken nuggets, I discovered I did not have honey mustard sauce. Easy pantry ingredients are required to make homemade honey mustard sauce. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and is easy to make. Honey mustard sauce means a lot of different things to me, but mostly what it means is that when I make it, I am going to get to eat something that will be dipped in sauce. And in my life, there are few things better than a meal dipped in sauce.

Let’s take, for example, chicken. I’ve mentioned before that my true feelings for chicken are less than wonderful, but you guys. Some magic shnazzery happens when I take chicken (ahem, the variety that’s been breaded and fried into chicken nuggets – leave me alone) and dip it into this pool of honey-gold. It’s the kind of sauce that could smash your chicken-hater ways and turn you into more of a lover.

I mean, a lover of all things dipped in the sauce.

So, yeah, this is a conditional kind of love. The Honey Mustard Sauce was quick and easy to make. It was so delicious! I was able to save some for my chicken nuggets. 🙂
