Honey-Mustard Roast Chicken with Winter Vegetables


Root vegetables and honey-mustard-glazed chicken are roasted together for layer upon layer of intense flavor, with very little added fat. If your parsnips are large and have spongy or woody centers, cut out the cores before slicing.

  • 6 small all-purpose potatoes, such as Yukon Gold, cut into wedges

  • 6 medium carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 2-inch slices

  • 3 medium parsnips, peeled, quartered lengthwise and cut into 2-inch slices

  • 1 head garlic, separated into cloves and peeled

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 2 1/2-3 pounds bone-in chicken pieces, skin removed

  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, plus 2 teaspoons chopped rosemary

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine potatoes, carrots, parsnips, garlic and oil in the roasting pan. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; toss well. Season chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and place, skinned-side down, in the center of the pan with rosemary sprigs. Sprinkle with chopped rosemary. Roast the chicken and vegetables for 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine mustard and honey in a small bowl.

  4. Turn the chicken over and stir the vegetables. Brush the chicken with honey-mustard mixture. Continue roasting, stirring vegetables once or twice, until the chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender, 25 to 35 minutes more. (If the chicken is done before the vegetables, remove and keep warm while vegetables finish cooking.) Serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
