Looking for something new this week to try with chicken?  How about my Garlic and Honey Dijon Roasted Chicken?

With a savory and lightly sweet taste, this is a chicken that the whole family will love.

I used chicken thighs for this recipe, but any part will do, you just pick you favorite :)  But cooking time may vary.

Garlic and Honey Dijon Roasted Chicken Thighs
  • 10 Chicken Thighs, bone in with skin (around 3 lbs)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  1. Preheat over to 350 F
  2. Prepare a large baking dish or tray (with a lip) with foil and spray with baking spray
  3. In a large bowl combine mustard, honey, salt, olive oil, garlic and pepper
  4. Whisk together
  5. Add in chicken and coat with sauce
  6. Place chicken on tray in a single layer

  1. Just wanted you to know I made this tonight and it came out great! Thank you! I found it on Pinterest.

  2. I made this the other day and it turned out great! I ended up doubling the sauce and (because I'm lazy and wanted a one-pot meal) I added sliced potatoes and frozen brussels sprouts and ended up cooking the whole shebang in a roasting pan. Holy cow did that sauce ever go good with the potatoes and sprouts! I also ended up broiling it for a smidgen to crisp up the chicken a bit more. I will most definitely make this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
