Ingredients 

  • 7-8 chicken thighs — skin on, bone in, but any work
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning or to taste
  • 7 unpeeled garlic cloves — so that they don’t burn
  • 1.5 tablespoons honey dijon mustard or regular mustard
  • juice of 1 lemon + leave the lemon pieces inside
  • ½ cup any white wine — I used Pinot Grigio or unsalted veggie or chicken broth
  • ½ cup water

Instructions 

  • Add the chicken to any baking dish and add all of the ingredients minus the water and wine.
  • Give it a nice massage with clean hands and you can bake it right away or you can even let it marinate overnight if you want this made the following day.
  • Feel free to add some potatoes to the dish if you want. When you are ready to bake you can add the wine and water and cover it with a lid or foil.
  • Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes, uncover it and you can put the oven to broil so that you can get the skin nice and crispy but keep a very close eye on it as it can easily burn.
  • You can use the garlic and spread it on bread and pour the sauce on top. Enjoy

Notes

You are more than welcome to use any cut of chicken of choice but if you use chicken breast you will have to reduce the cooking time because it cooks faster so keep an eye on it. You can definitely use skinless boneless chicken thighs as well. Cooking time will vary on the size and thickness but 45 minutes is more than ok. It should reach 165F internal temp if you use a meat thermometer. Honey dijon mustard is optional

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    One of my absolute favourite recipes on your page. The sauce…I mean, good enough to chug 😉 I made it with mashed potatoes and poured the sauce over the potatoes. SO GOOD!
