Recipe: Honey Mustard Chicken Legs

Looking for a quick and tasty recipe to bake chicken drumsticks? This one’s for you!

No marinating time required!

I like to use an enameled rectangular stone baking dish like Le Creuset.
It cleans up easily and no need for aluminum foil!

Serves 2.


5 drumsticks
2 Tbs yellow mustard
2 Tbs honey
1 Tbs oil
1 Tbs mayo
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven 375˚F
  2. Mix all seasoning ingredients in baking dish.
  3. Wash drumsticks and pat dry with paper towel.
  4. Place drumsticks in the baking dish, rubbing the seasoning mix thoroughly over the drumsticks.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes on each side.
  6. [Optional]:  In the last 5 minutes throw in half broccoli florets (from half a head), carrots and chopped onions.

I just made this for lunch and the husband did not hesitate to reach for a second helping.

Cleanup tip: soak baking dish with soap and warm water. Requires minimal scrubbing.
