Put rack in the middle position in the oven, and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the lemon juice with the olive oil and garlic powder in a large bowl, stir well to combine, then add the chicken thighs, one at a time, to coat them with the marinade. With the pieces still in the bowl, season them well with salt and pepper. Place the chicken pieces ON A RACK, on a jelly roll pan (or any flat pan with a rim), skin-side down. Roast for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the minced garlic with thyme, mustard, and honey in a small mixing bowl. Mix well. Remove the chicken from the oven, baste well with the honey mustard sauce on both sides, then turn the pieces skin-side up. Continue to roast for another 5 to 10 minutes, until fully cooked (165 degrees) and nicely browned. Remove from oven, brush on additional honey-mustard sauce if desired, and serve.
