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 regularly try to mix things up and try new flavor combinations. I have 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 is a keeper for sure! And so easy too!

This is such an easy recipe and a flavor combo that everyone enjoys. Begin by creating the dry-rub mixture. Whisk together salt, black pepper, dry mustard, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, and brown sugar. Next, in a large oven-safe skillet or baking dish, arrange the chicken pieces in a single layer. Generously coat all sides of chicken pieces with the dry-rub mixture. Finish by baking the chicken in the oven at 450-degrees F for 25 minutes uncovered. While the chicken is baking, mix together honey and mustard to use as a glaze. After 25 minutes of baking, carefully remove the chicken from the oven, and brush or drizzle with the honey mustard mixture. Return chicken to oven and cook for another until done and golden brown, about 10-15 more minutes. So easy!

Slightly spicy and tangy with a bit of sweet from honey, Honey Mustard Baked Chicken Thighs are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! For even easier prep, 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!
