Baked Chicken with Onions & Leeks

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/baked_chicken_onions_leeks.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2010

Baking pieces of chicken is one of the easiest ways to put a meal on the table for your family. This mustard-glazed chicken is roasted on a bed of sliced onions, leeks and garlic that you can serve alongside it.

6 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Toss onions, leek, garlic, 2 tablespoons oil, thyme and salt in a large bowl until the vegetables are well coated. Spread the mixture in a nonreactive 9-by-13-inch baking dish (see Tip). Place the chicken pieces on the vegetables. Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk mustard, shallot, rosemary, soy sauce and pepper in a small bowl; gradually whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  4. After 10 minutes, brush the chicken with the mustard glaze. Continue baking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a leg or breast (without touching bone) registers 165°F, 30 to 45 minutes more. Serve the chicken with the vegetables.
