Heat large grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot or preheat broiler. Arrange skewers in grill pan or on broiler pan coated with cooking spray, brushing with any honey mustard remaining in bowl. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve hot over steamed spinach, if desired.
