Easy weeknight dinner solution – grab some chicken, remove the skin, brush it with this Dijon-lime sauce and put it in the oven. You can make this with thighs or even breast if you prefer!

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken drumsticks (skin removed*)
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1 lime (squeezed, and lime zest)
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Rinse the chicken and remove the skin and all fat. Pat dry; place in a large bowl and season with salt.
  • In a small bowl combine Dijon, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, garlic and pepper. Mix well. Pour over chicken, tossing well to coat.
  • Spray a large baking pan with a little Pam to prevent sticking since all the fat and skin was removed from chicken.
  • Place chicken to fit in a single layer. Top the chicken with dried parsley.
  • Bake until cooked through, about 35 minutes. Finish the chicken under the broiler until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
