  • This recipe, created by Everyday Food editor Lucinda Scala Quinn's oldest son, Calder, showcases juicy, flavorful chicken thighs with a sauce that makes itself in the pan.
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey



Step 1

In a bowl, toss chicken thighs with olive oil and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper and marinate 1 hour (or up to a day). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roast chicken, skin side down, in an oiled roasting pan, 20 to 25 minutes; flip and roast 10 more minutes. Stir together grainy mustard and honey and season with salt and pepper. Brush glaze onto chicken and broil 5 minutes. Cook’s NoteCalder says,“Make sure you save all those delicious lemony, chickeny juices that collect in the pan.”
