Honey Dijon Chicken Salad with Brie and Walnuts

This is one of my favourite ways to turn a great healthy salad into a full and satisfying workday dinner. That is especially true during grilling season.

That’s when I can add something tasty off the grill to an interesting combination of salad ingredients for a delicious mix of tastes and textures.

We generally use organic honey in our recipes.

I’ve used a smooth dijon mustard here but whole grain is very good too.

This one was particularly good when we added Honey Dijon Chicken to a terrific salad. It included ripe fruit, creamy brie and crunchy toasted walnuts.

It was a fantastic mix and one I’ll definitely be making again.

TIP:

I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts

For the marinade

  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper

For the Honey-Dijon Glaze

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

Instructions

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together and rub onto the chicken breasts. Let marinate in the fridge for a 1/2 hour while you make the Honey Dijon Glaze.

To make the Honey Dijon Glaze

  1. Simmer the honey, mustard,vinegar, ginger, salt and chicken stock together in a small saucepan for about 10 minutes before thickening with a slurry of 1 rounded teaspoon of corn starch dissolved in 3 or 4 tbsp water.

Do you mean to use the honey dijon glaze as a dressing for the salad or should the salad be tossed with a dressing first?
