This recipe is SO easy but here's a few tips and tricks to creating the best Roasted Honey Mustard Chicken & Potatoes:
- Bake Time: This will depend on the type and the thickness of the chicken you use. Your best bet is to use a meat thermometer to ensure chicken is fully cooked.
- Protein: We opt for bone-in chicken thighs with the skin for added flavor but you can use boneless skinless breasts or another cut of meat if that's what you prefer! Adjust cooking time as needed.
- Honey Mustard: This glaze should be thick enough to stick to the chicken but still pourable. You may need to add a couple tablespoons of warm water to create the right consistency. For even more protein, add a dollop of full fat greek yogurt.
