Honey mustard chicken recipe

At times, you may feel lazy to go in for a full scale cooking and wish to make a simple dish and finish the dinner. This Honey mustard chicken recipe is just for that kind of occasion, when you want to sweat less. Mixing olive oil, honey, and Dijon mustard and pouring over the chicken and baking in a casserole dish is all that is required for cooking this simple dish. The gravy from the chicken with mustard and honey makes the chicken skin golden brown and crispy. The dish when served with rice soaks the rice with the honey mustard gravy and adds to taste. You may not want to eat the chicken with skin, but still its better to cook the chicken with the skin, as it protects the meat from drying out and gives a different taste. It takes about 10 minutes for the preparatory work and about forty-five minutes to cook this dish. The dish could yield to four or six serves depending upon the quantity served.

Ingredients required

  • 3 pounds chicken thighs or legs
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of smooth Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Two sprigs rosemary
  • Black pepper, freshly ground

    Preparation method

    Preheat the oven to 350.

    Use a large bowl to mix olive oil, mustard and honey and add a pinch of salt to taste. In case you want to have more flavors, you can add some more mustard and salt. Season the chicken lightly with salt and spread the chicken pieces (skin side up) in a shallow casserole dish. Using a spoon, pour the honey and mustard sauce over the chicken pieces. You may place the rosemary sprigs among the chicken pieces and bake for about 45 minutes until it reaches a temperature of 175 degrees F. This temperature could be found by inserting the thermometer into the thighs of the chicken. If you pierce the chicken with a knife and the juices run out, you can be assured that the chicken is baked. Remove the casserole from the oven and using a spoon wipe off any excess chicken fat. You can now sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper over the chicken and serve.

    After reading the recipe, you must be happy that you can save your valuable time by cooking this simple, easy and at the same a tasteful dish.
