Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime

I love dishes with Dijon in them.  This is one of my favorites!  This one came from Bobby Dean (Paula Dean's son).  Now - before you hear the name Paula Dean and think "unhealthy" or "butter" this one is not unhealthy.  It calls for a tablespoon of mayo but that's not too bad. Super tasty!  Check this one out.  It's super easy and you pop it in the oven for about 45 min and it's all ready!  This one is Gluten Free and Dairy free!  Enjoy!


Chicken legs, thighs (boneless and skinless) and breasts (boneless and skinless) about 8 or 9 pieces
3 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, minced
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
3/4 tsp pepper


Preheat the oven to 400.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry; place in a large bowl.  In a small bowl. whisk together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime zest and juice and pepper.  Season the chicken generously with salt.  Pour mustard-Mayo mixture over the chicken, tossing well to coat.

In a large baking pan, arrange the chicken to fit in a single layer.  Bake until it is cooked through; breasts will take about 30 minutes, and legs will need 5 to 10 minutes more.

Serve the chicken with the pan juices drizzled over the top.
