Garlic Honey Dijon Chicken

You can never go wrong with a chicken recipe … It will most likely become a favourite dish … this recipe is one of those for my family. My daughter is a HUGE fan of chicken so I have a huge list of chicken recipe options cause if I ever over-repeat a dish, I get told off by the 4 year old !!! I had a real busy work week and weekend and I had to slot in easy to make yet delicious and healthy recipes for my little family. I have used chicken thighs in this recipe, but you can also use chicken wings or drumsticks. I also chose to cook them in the oven, but you can cook it over the stove or even BBQ it!

The honey, garlic and dijon mustard together brings out an amazing flavor … if you can’t find dijon mustard, use plain mustard … you can never go wrong with this recipe. Serve this with a salad or a pasta dish and you have one complete and budget friendly meal …
