Roast Chicken Thighs

This is a fuss free one-pot dish where all the ingredients are roasted together. It's my favorite way of cooking chicken thigh where it doesn't involved much cleaning or washing. This kind of meal ideal is for a family dinner - serve it at the table, straight from the roasting pan. Just add a green salad and you are good to go.

Ingredients :

4 chicken thigh with legs - removed all the skin and fat (if you prefer the skin then leave it on)
2 tbsp of Dijon mustard
1 tbsp of honey
salt and pepper
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of garlic powder
few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 pound of red skin potatoes - cut into half or quarters
2 medium size onions - cut into quarters


1) Marinate the chicken thigh will all the above ingredients except the onions, potatoes and set aside for at least an hour.
2) Pre-heat over to 400 degree F. Line the baking pan with aluminium foil (for easy cleaning) and oil the base with some olive oil.
3) Place the cut vegetables at the bottom of the baking pan and sprinkle some salt and pepper and drizzle some olive oil and toss well.
4) Place the chicken thigh on top of the vegetables and roast it for 45 minutes to an hour or until the chicken is done and the potatoes are tender.

Note : You can always used other type of roasting vegetables for this dish.

Yeah, got to try this no-fuss recipe... I love zucchini and am thinking to add some to the roasting pan too... Roasted red skin potatoes is my all time favourite.

gert...this picture reminds me of the chicken you roasted when I was there. I can still remember the taste of the chicken, and the tomato salad that both you and Carlos made. YUM!

Will definitely try this when I get my oven. Thanks for sharing.

Your roasted chicken look yummy! Thanks to you, I am too beginning to enjoy roasting my chicken. Will the dijon mustard give strong dijon taste after the chicken is done?

Cat, this should be a good dish for your family. Just prepare everything and pop it in the oven.

Pinky, when are you getting the oven? You can do a lot of things with oven and is easy and not much clean up :)

Zue, is not sourish at all that is why I add a tbsp of honey to it.
