Honey Dijon Chicken


This is one of those recipes you will want to hold on to for dear life.  Whatever you do, don’t lose it, it’s a gem.  You can make it in advance, though it’s a sinch to throw together as a last minute or mid-week meal, and it’s impressive enough to serve up to guests.  I found it over at MamaBake.com, so I knew it had to be a crowd pleaser and easily adapted to feed an army.  What’s MamaBake?  MamaBake is a movement where mums, and sometimes dads too, regularly get together in one kitchen, each bringing one recipe, along with enough ingredients to make a bulk batch and they set about cooking and chatting, and at the end of their cooking session, they divvy-up their dishes, with each woman going home with a variety of different meals to feed her family for a couple of days (often a week!). What a great way to make new friends, try new foods and give yourself some free time at the end of each day.  And Honey Dijon Chicken is one of their recipes.  The first time I made it my family argued over the left-over sauce in the pan, and when I made it for my in-laws my Mother-in-law asked for the recipe…….The Ultimate Compliment!  So I’m passing it on, I hope your family likes it too.


Honey Dijon Chicken

Serves 12 (recipe easily halved etc.)


2kg  Boneless Chicken Thighs, trimmed (I used Chicken Breasts)

2 Brown Onions, finely diced (I like to use Spanish Onions for a bit of colour)

1 1/2 Cups Dijon Mustard

1 Cup Honey

4-5 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (or tamari for gluten free)

3-4 teaspoons Curry Powder.



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees.
  2. Heat a frypan over med/high heat and cook the diced onions in a little oil until they begin to colour.
  3. Trim the chicken thighs and distribute in your baking dish(es)
  4. Mix the dijon, honey, soy sauce and curry powder and pour over the chicken.  Sprinkle the onion over each dish(es).
  5. Bake for around an hour until the chicken is cooked and the sauce thick, glazed and beautiful.
  6. Resist the urge to eat the lot as you divvy it up!
