Easy and quick to prepare Honey Mustard Roast Chicken with Potatoes and Onions make the perfect midweek dinner. Pieces of chicken, potatoes and onions marinated in a honey mustard mix and roasted for just 40 minutes creates a perfectly golden colour and a succulent and delicious meal.
Oh my goodness…the delicious smell of this meal roasting in the oven is sooooo good. The combination of honey and mustard is truly amazing. I love so many things about this recipe but one of them is the versatility of this meal. Ingredients like mixed herbs and chili powder tastes great when added, but is totally optional. Add ingredients like garlic and butternut pieces instead of potatoes if you like or flavour with sprigs of rosemary. Don’t you just love versatile meals?Perfect for when you don’t have a few of the ingredients in your kitchen but can still turn this into a delicious dinner.
Prepared in ONE POT? ( emphasis on ONE POT because it makes life in the kitchen so easy…I love cooking and baking but not a fan of washing up?) and served with a salad and crusty bread, this has become one of our favorite dinner recipes.?
I use mixed chicken portions in this recipe because everybody has their favorite piece, but you can use portions you prefer. This entire dish can be marinated in a mixture of honey mustard and spices the night before and kept in the fridge until you are ready to put it into the oven the next day. How convenient is that?? While in the oven, I cover the pan with a sheet of foil to prevent the chicken and vegetables from drying out. Then remove it about 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time to crisp the chicken and create a warm golden color.
Just a heads up… don’t plan to take this for your lunch the next day, because one things for certain….there will be no leftovers ?
