School is in full-swing and evenings are jam-packed with sports, band practice, homework, etc. The last thing you need is to prepare a complicated dinner that uses every dish in the kitchen and ends up being something the kids won't eat.
We present your new favorite weeknight meal — 5 Ingredient Honey-Mustard Chicken!
Time: 55 mins (10 mins prep + 45 mins cook)
1/4 to 1/3 cup smooth Dijon mustard
1/4 to 1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp olive oil
2-3 pounds chicken thighs, legs or breasts
2 sprigs rosemary (or a generous sprinkling of dried rosemary)
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180 C). In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, honey, and olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and taste. Add more salt and mustard until you get the flavor where you want it.
Salt the chicken lightly and lay the pieces skin-side up in a shallow casserole dish. Add rosemary springs. Cook until the skin is golden and crispy. Spoon the honey mustard sauce over the chicken.
Serve with greens and wild rice, or keep it paleo with cauliflower rice.
