Dijon chicken holds a special place in my heart. It was one of the very first recipes I made when I began transforming my meals from the standard american diet (“SAD”) to more whole-food base. In that first month and two, I made this creamy rosemary [?] honey-dijon chicken. I wish I could remember the exact recipe to share with you but the chicken marinated over night and then it was baked in casserole dish. It yielded this ridiculous chicken. From there, I learned that Dijon Mustard gives dishes a rich/creamy taste and that I LOVE it. Which.. is why you see it used so often in my recipes!
Not only does this sheet pan dijon chicken has that creamy texture and taste, it also has the upper hand in the dijon chicken battles; it is seriously timely and totally budget friendly. The only knife work required is in preparing the brussels sprouts [if you choose not to buy pre-trimmed/sliced] and it comes in at $4.75 per serving! Helloooo groceries leading us to wealth!
What is Dijon Chicken?
Dijon Chicken is most commonly seen as chicken marinaded in a dijon mustard base and baked. It’s delicious, tangy, and pairs well with fibrous vegetables. This version skips the marinating and heads straight to a sweet and tangy dijon baked “crust”!
How to Make Sheet Pan Dijon Chicken and Brussels Sprouts
- Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Place the sprouts on the pan and season with extra virgin olive oil (“EVOO”), salt, and pepper. Mix them all up to season evenly!
- Then, in a small bowl, combine dijon mustard, coconut aminos, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and black pepper. Whisk with a fork until the mustard is incorporated and the sauce is smooth.
- Lay your boneless and skinless chicken thighs on top of the brussels sprouts.
- Spoon the dijon sauce over each chicken, evening out with the back of the spoon.
- Bake! Into the oven it goes for 20 minutes at 350℉, or until the internal temperature of the thickest chicken reaches 165℉!
