Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

Where has this honey mustard sauce been all my life?! It is ridiculously good and is the perfect topping for juicy chicken thighs.

The sauce is made up of a combination of dijon mustard, honey, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.



This dish has less than 10 minutes of prep time. Simply mix up the sauce ingredients and brush it on the chicken. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 175 degrees. To get the nice crispy skin on top I like to broil the chicken after it’s baked.

I love to serve this chicken with a side of veggies and rice.

    Made this last night for my meal prep for the week. Can I just say that this is one of the best chicken recipes I’ve ever had?!?
    I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs just to make it a little easier for me and instead of brushing the sauce on the chicken, I marinated it for about two hours while I cooked everything else for the meal prep and then off it went into the oven. Just moving it into my containers for the week got me super excited for it but when I actually ate it today, I was blown away! Super flavorful and moist! Perfect option for meal prepping or eating it right away. Definitely adding it to my normal rotation 🙂
