Roasted chicken is also one of the easiest dinners you can make. All it takes is a well seasoned bird, a hot oven, and about two hours of time for a lovely meal. This Honey Mustard Chicken is a great meal when you have lots of family over! Make it with your favorite blend of seasonings, or change up our recipe by season based on what’s in season or to suit your family’s taste. We are using Montreal Chicken Seasoning in this version of the recipe.
The key to a great roasted chicken is in the marinade: it keeps the bird moist and infuses the whole meal with a medley of flavors. A good marinade will also let the skin on the chicken get perfectly crispy-if you use too much oil or liquid, you won’t get the crunch you’re looking for.
Summer vegetables are perfect for roasting with this Honey Mustard Chicken. Potatoes, carrots, squash…you name it! We like to use small, whole new potatoes for roasting. They don’t get soggy in the marinade with the bird, but will be soft on the inside and delicious. You can use potato spears if you like, but roast them separately from the bird, and add them into the pan when you serve the meal. Make some extra marinade if you do this, and toss the potatoes before you roast them like we did.
