Ingredients:

For the Honey Mustard Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Chicken & Potatoes:

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4-6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

1. Marination Magic: In a bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to create the honey mustard marinade.

2. Chicken Coating: Place the chicken thighs in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour half of the honey mustard marinade over the chicken, ensuring it’s well coated. Reserve the remaining marinade for later.

3. Marinate and Infuse: Seal the bag or cover the dish with plastic wrap and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours, allowing the flavors to infuse.

4. Potato Prepping: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large bowl, toss the quartered potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper, ensuring they’re evenly co ated.

5. Chicken and Potatoes Ensemble: Place the marinated chicken thighs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Arrange the seasoned potatoes around the chicken.

6. Roasting Radiance: Roast the chicken and potatoes in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender. The chicken skin should be golden and crispy.

7. Glazing Brilliance: During the last 10 minutes of roasting, brush the reserved honey mustard marinade over the chicken, creating a luscious glaze.

8. Garnish and Serve: Once fully cooked, remove the Honey Mustard Chicken & Potatoes from the oven. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.

9. Plating Perfection: Arrange the roasted chicken thighs and potatoes on individual plates or a serving platter, ensuring that each plate is a masterpiece of flavors and textures.
