Today’s recipe is “Baked Mustard Chicken Legs and potatoes”. It’s very easy to put together and taste fantastic. I used chicken thighs in this recipe but you can also use a whole chicken, chicken wings, drumsticks… This recipe is one of my signature dishes where I cook chicken tights and drumsticks are in a pot with potatoes. Sometimes, I also add other vegetable like carrots, onion, green pepper… This meal is very inexpensive even though I used organic chicken and potatoes.
The recipe is simple: clean and season the meat; peel the potatoes, cut and season with salt; place them in a baking pan (I used Pyrex dish). The juice from the chicken adds water to the potatoes to soften them up. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 F for an hour. Then uncover the pan and bake for another 15 minutes or until chicken turns golden and vegetables seem cooked.
