Most of which you already have in your pantry. This recipe makes 8 chicken thighs so you’ll have plenty of leftovers! This is the perfect recipe for meal prepping.
- Chicken Thighs (I love using bone in skin on chicken thighs however boneless chicken thighs or breast can be substituted. The cooking time will be a lot shorter as well.)
- Dijon mustard
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Salt + Pepper
How to make Baked Honey Mustard Chicken
Start by combining honey, dijon mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a medium bowl, set aside. Add chicken thighs to a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Brush the honey mustard sauce evenly onto the chicken. Bake until the chicken reaches 175 degrees, about 30-40 minutes. To get the nice crispy skin on top I like to broil the chicken after it’s baked. Turn the broiler on high and cook until the skin gets browned and crispy, 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy!
