Rated 5.0 based on 8 customer reviews


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1½ cups green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (210°C). Coat a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil or line with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk olive oil, melted butter, honey, mustard, garlic, oregano, basil, black pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl until glaze is smooth. 
  3. Lay chicken on prepared baking sheet. Spoon about half of the glaze over the chicken. 
  4. Place baking sheet with glazed chicken in the oven uncovered and roast until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the tray from the oven and arrange green beans around the chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Top green beans with a few lemon slices and spoon remaining glaze over the chicken breasts. 
  6. Continue roasting chicken and green beans until green beans are tender, about 10 minutes.
  7. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Slice chicken into thin ¼-inch pieces on the bias and serve each breast on a plate with green beans.
Mealthy tip:

Try asparagus or broccolini instead of the green beans for a different vegetable option. Lay a few sprigs of fresh rosemary or oregano over the chicken for the last part of baking for a fragrant, herbal flavor. Make a side of fluffy white rice and you've got a full plate. Pour a glass of red wine to round out the meal!

Okay.... this recipe is crazy unbelievably good. I doubled the recipe and our small family still devoured all of this. This recipe delivers super juicy chicken, a delicious sauce. I did broccoli florets rather than green beans and it was amazing. This is a new favorite at our house! Thank you so much.

I've had this recipe bookmarked but I just bought a pressure cooker so wanted to try it out. I seared the chicken until golden brown, removed it, then stirred together the glaze ingredients plus 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth in the pot. Added the chicken and green beans back to the pot and cooked under high pressure for 12 minutes. perfect!!!!

This chicken dijon recipe tastes just like the chicken recipe that my mom used to make. The one-pan cooking method made for really easy clean-up, and added lots of wonderful flavor to the green beans as well. Loved it!

simple and delicious! the glaze was tasty and a touch on the sweet side, definitely not too sweet but I prefer a bit more of that mustardy punch, I'll probably half the honey next time.

the chicken is amazing. I would have sauteed the green beans with some garlic and onions. I would suggest making double the marinade for the next time because there will be a next time. Yummy!!
