Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Combine mustard, mayonnaise, garlic, and zest and juice of 1 lime in a large bowl. Mix well. Sprinkle chicken drumsticks and thighs with salt and garlic pepper. Add chicken to the bowl and coat well. Place chicken into a baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear, about 40 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, and cilantro in a bowl. Season with salt and juice of 1 lime.

  • Remove chicken from the oven and serve with pan juices and a generous portion of salsa on top. Garnish with parsley.

Cook's Notes:

You may use Montreal seasoning instead of garlic pepper, if you'd like.

You may leave the seeds in the jalapeno peppers if you want your salsa really spicy.

This was ok. The salsa was the best part, but the mustard really leant this a weird flavor. I think upping the mayo to keep the thick, creamy factor and switching out salsa for spicy mustard would fix this entirely. The only change I made was to use yellow onion instead of red because I forgot I was out of red onion. Read More
