Honey Mustard chicken

I think my kids think my job as a SAHM is a stroll in the park. That I sit around all day eating Bon Bons and thinking of what to cook for them once they get home from school. My role in the family is merely a cook. My kids go off to school ALL day working SO hard and all they can think about is what I am going to cook.

Upon returning from a very hard day at school (do hear the sarcasm just dripping in my words?) all The Tortured Teenager can ask is "what's for dinner?" No hello! No "how was your day?" So I proceeded to ignore her. I'm good for more than just food right? Finally I give in, "Honey Mustard Chicken" and she walks away pleased. Only to turn around "you're making Smashed Potatoes and Corn!" Not a question but a demand! Being that I am miffed over my role in the family I will cover MY chicken tonight and cover The Tortured Teenagers favorite items tomorrow. I hold a grudge!

Honey Mustard Chicken is easy to make and chances are you have all the ingredients in your kitchen. The smell is so powerful while it is cooking that I recommend cooking it for company! Just don't tell anyone how simple it was to make. The honey in the chicken creates a caramelized skin that I dare you not to pick at!


1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1/3 cup honey
1TB dried Dill
zest of one orange
4 chicken breasts on the bone with skin on
(if skin on chicken skin offends you-go skinless!)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

In a bowl combine Dijon mustard, honey, dill and orange zest.

Look at my orange off my tree. Isn't she a beauty?

Don't toss the orange after you take the zest! It's going to be my snack! Excuse the napkin-I have work to do!

The sauce is so good, consider making double and putting some aside for dipping. I would have but as you can see from my pictures I was short for 1/3 of a cup.

Look the sauce is the same color as the OLD tile in my kitchen!
Oil your baking sheet. It's a must for my old cookie sheets. They've seen better days!
Salt and pepper chicken and place skin down.

Brush sauce over chicken.

Turn chicken over and pry skin loose from the meat.

Again if the skin offends you, buy skinless and skip to the next step. Brush sauce under the skin. Then brush sauce on the top of the chicken.

Bake for 35-40 min or until cooked thoroughly

Tomorrow- Rocking Corn!

Sounds really good. Your daughter sounds like my husband.

btw...if you line your baking sheet with foil you'll have 0 clean up. I do that with stuff I know I'll be scrubbing for hours.
