Hi Vanessa, if you can not find honey mustard, you could use 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard.  Happy cooking!

It seems that honey mustard is not available anywhere in any brand at the moment. What are the alternatives please?

Melanie Colvin

Love this one too!  I used boneless, skinless thigh meat and added veg stock powder to the water.

Hi Donna and Gayle! We use supermarket brand honey mustard - masterfoods sell a brand if you live in Australia. Happy cooking!

Just made this tonight.  Absolutely delish! Served with sauteed snowpeas with lots of butter, kosher salt and a slurp of honey.  Yummy.

Gayle Staiger

As per Donna’s comment below, I too would like to know what sauce you use for the 1/2cup of honey mustard in this recipe please?

Michael Johnson

I can’t wait to make this. I am fructose intolerant and Can’t have honey, but it will taste awesome with maple syrup I am sure.

Alison McKay

What would be a good substitute for the cream if I’m serving to a dairy free friend? Coconut cream?

Donna Leahy

What sauce do you use when it says honey mustard?
