Bobby’s Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime Bobby’s Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 (3 1/2 lb) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
3 Tbs Dijon Mustard
1 Tbs Mayo
1 Garlic Clove, minced
Finely grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 1 Lime
3/4 Tsp pepper
Salt to taste
Chopped parsley to garnish





Preheat the oven to 400. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime zest and juice and pepper. Season the chicken generously with salt. Pour the mustard-mayo mixture over the chicken, tossing well to coat. In a large baking pan, arrange the chicken in a single layer. Bake until it is cooked through; breasts take about 30 minutes and legs will need 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve the chicken with pan juices drizzled over top and garnished with chopped parsley.

While on vacation, we had limited ingredients-and used Bobby's recipe. In addition we added diced fresh tomatoes and melted swiss cheese on top. Everyone was filled and raving. Thanks!

Our house is filled with Chicken lovers but we were getting tired of the same thing over and over. So I saw this recipe in the peoples magazine and tried it out. I was surprised how such an easy recipe could taste so good. The combination of lime and dijon is unique and was sad I hadn't thought of it sooner. I love Paula Deen recipes and hopefully one day have had tried them all.
