  • Whisk honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, water, olive oil, and garlic together in a large bowl. Add chicken legs and toss to coat. Place chicken legs on the prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. Turn over and cook longer if needed.

Cook's Notes:

If using foil in the bottom of the pan, spray it with nonstick spray also for easy cleanup.

Use chicken breasts, thighs, or a combo of both.

FABULOUS recipe! My kitchen smelled incredible the entire time this was in the oven. I did realize at the last minute that this called for chicken legs- and my family isn't really into chicken legs. I had some boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the freezer I ended up using and they were excellent. I think this would be good with chicken breasts too and I will probably go that route next time. I might even consider marinating the chicken in the sauce before baking. That sauce is SO GOOD! I served the chicken thighs over white rice. Read More

It was bland. Probably would be much better if it marinated overnight Read More

I made this recipe exactly as stated. The sauce was very good tangy and sweet. I will make this recipe again. Read More

Swapped spicy brown mustard for the dijon, and cider for the water. Used this on 5 drumsticks with beets, radish and carrots as a sheet pan dinner. Read More

Very tasty chicken but it burned to the hilt when baking. Set off the fire alarms. Something about this is missing. Read More

We enjoyed it very much . I made it with 4 pieces of quartered chicken legs . I added extra herb seasonings (Montreal chicken ). Will definitely make it again. Loved the sauce! I marinated it for a few hours in ziploc bag and baked with parchment paper liner. Thank you for sharing recipe! Read More

I liked this recipe I used leg quarters and they cooked perfectly in the prescribed time at 425 degrees. I thought the flavor might be stronger with all the ingredients but it was delicious subtle flavor also very moist. I served with rice and sauteed brussel sprouts and onion. Will make again.

This will be my new go-to chicken recipe. I marinated boneless thighs and cooked them on the grill. Boiled up the extra marinade and served as sauce over rice. We were tempted to lick out the sauce dish! Read More
