Honey Mustard Baked Chicken

It's an easy to prepare dish.

My 3 year old rosemary plant died after I got back to work, LOL. I barely had time to do gardening. And this dish was made before I said goodbye to it.

I tried out this dish because I wanted to use up my Dijon mustard. But it turned out so good, that I went to get another jar, just in case I wanted to make it again. FYI, Dijon mustard is not common near where I stay. I got it from Jaya Grocer few hundred kilometers away. I'm glad Jaya came to Ipoh this year. But I've only been there once as I don't like going to Ipoh Parade.

This chicken tasted oh so heavenly, and yet so easy to make. Just marinate and bake. The gravy tasted fabulous and I prepared Mashed Potatoes with Egg to go with it. I think some noodles or pasta will be great too.

  1. Thanks for sharing Wendy. Is Dijon mustard the one from the squeezy bottle? or is it in the form of pepper?

  2. Esther Lee,
    Dijon Mustard is usually sold in jars, sauce form, like mayonnaise. The label will say it's Dijon Mustard. Different mustard taste different, so cannot interchange.
    I just updated the post with a picture of my empty mustard jar.

  3. Hi
    This is lovely. I'm going to make this.

  4. Hi Wendy, just wanted to know is rosemary important in this recipe?

  5. Seek Wai,
    Yes it is, You can use dried rosemary if you can't get fresh. 1/2 tsp of coarse dried rosemary is sufficient

  6. Hi Wendy! Can I replace Dijon mustard with mustard powder?

  7. Chew Chai Hon,
    I'm not too sure if the outcome will be the same, as mustard powder seems to be a lot more spicier and the taste profile is a bit different.
