Mustard Roasted Chicken is by far my go to meal when I just don’t want to be hassled with what’s for dinner! Ten minutes to prep and the oven does the rest. It’s my kind of “give it no thought” meal. Plus, I’m a sucker for the leftover chicken for casseroles, sandwiches, enchiladas etc. With just two of us, the leftovers are plenty and are coveted for another meal.
Being a shift worker I do have the luxury of cooking a two hour chicken during the week without much concern. And believe me I cook this probably more than I should. Depending on your schedule you can still pull it off by having the chicken tucked in the pan and slathered with mustard paste in advance. I also love how it becomes a one pan meal when you add potatoes and vegetables to the mix. I generally add the potatoes and veggies after the chicken has cooked for 30 minutes. Make sure your produce is cut to a similar size to allow for even cooking.
You will love Mustard Roasted Chicken not only for its simplicity but for the bright and zesty mustard rub that brings life to all that it coats. With that being said, I use the same paste on pork and lamb with equally great results. It’s especially tasty when used on grilled meats. So don’t hesitate to slap this mustard paste on your next grilled pork chop. Enjoy!
