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.

"I guess I'm in the minority, but I did not like this--and I love leeks, onions, and mustard. My husband was also underwhelmed. I did use more leeks than were called for (I had no other use for them & didn't want to waste them), but I...

This was amazingly tasty, but next time I plan to use 2-3 times as many leeks.


This was really easy and incredibly flavorful, which surprised me, because I'm not a huge fan of mustard. I baked 4 chicken thighs and 4 chicken drumsticks. I used whole-grain mustard, because it's what I had on hand, and I used dried thyme instead of fresh. Other than that, the only addition I made was to add about a tablespoon of OJ to the mustard sauce because the whole-grain mustard made the sauce very thick. I spooned the onion mixture over the chicken when I served it. YUM! I will make this recipe again for sure.


I can't believe how delicious this was - and how easy it was to make. The flavor was excellent and was a real winner with the whole family!


This is an awesome dish! Super flavorful, and makes the house smell great! The first time I made this, I made it exactly per the recipe - fantastic. The next time I added some sliced fennel with the leeks. Really great!


I love leeks! That said I was sad that this recipe didn't live up to it's comments and rating. My taste buds were confused while eating this dish, it appeared that I had two different kinds of chicken. The flavor from the chicken resting on the onions, leeks, garlic & herbs might have been good, but it was overpowered by the dijion sauce that was placed on the top. Unfortuately the sauce was too heavy on the top and did not work well with the onion, leeks and garlic.
