Ask questions that promote honesty

To get your child into the habit of being honest, praise her honesty. Ask if she did an assigned chore. If she did and says yes, praise her for her work and for her honesty. If she says she didn't do it, praise her honesty and then ask her to do the chore. If she says yes when she didn't do it, ask why she lied. Keep asking questions; your child will probably decide it's easier to tell the truth in the first place.
