I like to think I’m a maverick, a think-out-of-the-box kinda gal. But honestly, when it comes to weeknight meals, just like everyone else, 78.3% of the time it’s chicken. Usually once a week or so we roast or grill chicken. It’s tried and true, and when Wednesday evening rolls around, you’re fit to be tied and ready to just put your pjs on, tried and true is the way to go.

We do try to mix things up and try new flavor combinations. I’ve shared so many fantastic roasted or grilled chicken recipes over the years, from Honey Soy Baked Chicken Thighs to Coconut Milk Baked Chicken, plus one of our all-time favorites for cooking wings, thighs or a whole chicken cut-up, Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken. Add to the list this Honey Mustard Baked Chicken Thighs recipe. It’s a keeper for sure. It’s such an easy recipe and a flavor combo that everyone enjoys. Spicy spicy and tangy with a bit of sweet from honey, this chicken is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! Mix up the easy dry-rub a few days ahead and be ready to pop this one in the oven for a quick meal any night of the week. Enjoy!
