Baked Sticky Honey Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
Nonstick cooking spray
One 3-pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 stick melted butter
Juice of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray.
Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
Combine the honey, mustard, melted butter and lemon juice in a large bowl. Toss the chicken through the mixture and place skin-side up on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper.
Bake until the chicken is fully cooked and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees F, about 40 minutes.
NOTE: My MIL used all chicken legs and said it needed to be cooked an additional 15 minutes at 400 on her oven to reach the 165 degrees!
