Chicken/ Dinner/ One-pot recipes

Easy Skillet Honey, Mustard and Lemon Chicken served with Sautéed Chilli Cavolo Nero

17 September 2020

I bought a proper cast iron skillet today, so happy with it! I love one pot dishes. I knew right away the first dish I wanted to make was a roasted chicken dish, and this recipe inspired by @asimpleplate didn’t disappoint.

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 50 minutes Total Time: 1 hour


  • 4 chicken thighs, with skin and bone
  • 4 potatoes - cubed (± 300g)
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 0.5 cup chicken stock
  • 0.5 squeezed and zested lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 3 grated cloves of garlic
  • 2 chopped rosemary sprigs
  • pepper & salt.
  • + veggies of choice, I used sautéed cavolo nero, but stir fried bimi or broccoli or something like that would go great too! Or maybe even a salad!



Start off by seasoning the chicken thighs well (I also had some drumsticks).


In an ovenproof skillet heat a glug of oil and sear the chicken on high heat till the skin is just slightly crispy ± 3 - 4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.


In the same pan sauté a chopped onion and cubed potatoes for about 5 minutes, until just starting to caramelize.


Add the chicken back to the skillet on top of the potatoes, skin side up.


For the sauce mix up the following ingredient in a bowl: 0.5 cup chicken stock, 0.5 squeezed and zested lemon, 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp mustard, 3 grated cloves of garlic, 2 chopped rosemary sprigs and pepper & salt.


Pour this sauce over the chicken and potatoes, add a few slices of lemon and place in a preheated oven (220 C) for 40 minutes.


When ready sprinkle with parsley and serve with a fresh green salad or like I did, sautéed cavolo nero with chilli flakes and garlic.


***You can choose for more Asian flavours - honey, soya sauce and sesame seed for example - or what about something more mediterranean like tomatoes with smoke paprika and harissa? ***Don't have an ovenproof skillet? Prepare everything in a frying pan first and then transfer to an oven dish, works fine as well.
