Honey and Mustard-Glazed Roast Chicken

Now this is a chicken recipe worth trying! I am not a big fan of chicken, but this recipe in Lucinda Scala Quinn’s Mad Hungry caught my attention and I decided to try it. And it was a success I tell you! I prepared patate al forno to serve on the side and they went very well together. Here’s the final results and the process. My advice: sprint NOW to the supermarket and buy some drumsticks!


Ingredients – for the chicken

– 8 drumsticks

– Juice of 1 lemon

– 3 Tbsp olive oil

– Salt and pepper and any fresh herbs you have on hand

Ingredients – for the honey mustard glaze

– 1 Tbsp mustard

– 1 Tbsp honey

– 1 Tbsp olive oil

– A pinch of salt and pepper


Marinate the chicken in the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and any herbs you’re using. Refrigerate for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 375C. Lay the chicken on a stick-free pan and put in the oven. Time 20 minutes and then flip the chicken to the other side. Time another 15 minutes. After 35 or 40 minutes your chicken should be ready.

To glaze the drumsticks with the honey mustard sauce, use a brush. Brush the chicken with the sauce and broil for 5 minutes.

And voila! The best roast chicken I’ve had in a loooong time. Enjoy!
