Barbecue chicken is a great summertime comfort food with wild regional variations in flavor and technique from across the globe. Our recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken is influenced by the mustard-based barbecue sauces common in South Carolina. With a hint of honey sweetness, the sauce, combined with a spicy rub, makes the most mouth-watering chicken that’s a welcome change from the usual sticky-sweet tomato-based sauces most folks are accustomed to. Even non-mustard fans salivate over this recipe!
