Apple Cider Mustard Sauce for Chicken

Glaze is also good on pork chops.

Quick Facts

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Chill Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


  • 1/2 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider concentrate* or apple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons grainy or whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 to 1-1/2 pounds total)


  1. Mix all ingredients together except chicken breasts, stirring well. Reserve 1/4 to 1/2 cup for sauce.
  2. Pour remaining sauce over chicken breasts as marinade. Marinate at least 15 minutes or for several hours.
  3. Heat grill or broiler to medium/high heat, 400°F. If broiling, line broiler pan with heavy duty aluminum foil as excess sauce will burn easily.
  4. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes per side to internal temperature of 165°. If desired, baste with marinade while grilling or broiling.
  5. To serve place cooked chicken on plate, drizzle with reserved sauce. For extra juiciness, slice chicken breasts before drizzling with sauce.
  6. *Tip: To make apple cider concentrate simply simmer 1 quart apple cider down to 3/4 cup.
