Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe

Minimal effort — that’s our favorite phrase. Do a bit of arranging, brushing, and drizzling, then let the oven take care of the rest of the work, for a dinner that’s sure to end up on the regular recipe rotation. We use chopped potatoes, carrots, and red onion in this recipe, but you could easily replace with baby new potatoes, baby carrots, and shallots or scallions to skip the knife work! Bonus: Throw a bit of cooked couscous or quinoa in the leftovers (maybe a cheeky sprinkling of goat cheese too), and tomorrow’s lunch is sorted. If you love the sheet-pan method, take a look at some of these veggie sheet pan dinners.
