Honey Mustard Chicken and Vegetables in a pan

With almost three weeks of school under our belts, we are gaining a new rhythm for our family once again. Earlier to bed, earlier to rise. Packing lunches. Checking off homework assignments. Sports and music practices. A part-time job for our oldest (a junior in high school)…on top of a mountain-high pile of homework that includes three AP classes.

It’s hectic. There’s no way around it.

When I’m able to slip in a coffee date with a friend, it truly feels like a gift.

During the busy school season, it’s more important than ever to make sure I have a line-up of easy dishes to set on the table for our family. This Honey Mustard Chicken and Vegetables comes together easily, and dirties just one pan. It’s a meal that’s big on flavor and comfort, perfect for this season.

Gold'n Plump Chicken Drumsticks

I like to keep Gold’n Plump Chicken Drumsticks in the freezer for easy meals. Thighs are also a favorite. I’ve always preferred the more flavorful dark meats.

For easy meals during the grilling season, we simply brush the drumsticks with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill until they’re mostly cooked. Then we slather on some barbecue sauce and finish up the grilling, waiting for the skin to get perfectly crispy and the sauce darkened and caramelized. It’s one of my favorite simple grilled meals.

This honey mustard chicken recipe brings the drumsticks back into the kitchen, a great dish for the cooler months ahead.

Honey Mustard Chicken

I like that the drumsticks from Gold’n Plump are hearty, with a good amount of meat. And they are highly trimmed by hand – which means less prep work for me.

To start, I brush each of the drumsticks with just a bit of olive oil. And then I sprinkle them with garlic powder, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

Then the drumsticks hit the hot skillet, to brown and crispify the skin.

A rich honey mustard sauce (I love to include a touch of sweet curry!) nestles the potatoes and green beans in with the browned chicken drumsticks. And then it all cooks in the oven together in one skillet. This is a wonderfully flavored honey mustard recipe.

When the potatoes are fork-tender, and the chicken is fully cooked with an irresistible crispy skin, the skillet is ready to set on the table.

  • 1 package 1.5 lbs. Gold'n Plump® Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 T. olive oil plus a bit more for brushing drumsticks
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ c. finely chopped yellow onion
  • ¼ c. honey
  • 2 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T. Dijon mustard
  • 1 T. stone ground mustard
  • 1 T. yellow prepared mustard
  • ½ tsp. sweet or mild curry powder
  • tsp. cayenne pepper omit if you don't like heat
  • 1 lb. baby red potatoes cut into 3/4" pieces
  • 6 oz. green beans trimmed and cut in half
  • fresh parsley minced


  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Brush drumsticks very lightly with olive oil, and then season with garlic powder and a generous sprinkling of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a 12" cast iron skillet over medium-high to medium heat, warm the tablespoon of olive oil. Once oil is shimmering, add drumsticks. Sear 2 to 3 minutes per side, until skin is golden and crispy. Remove drumsticks to a plate.
  • Using same skillet, turn heat down to medium. If skillet is fairly dry, add a bit more olive oil. Add garlic and onion, and stir to combine. Sauté until fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add honey, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, stone ground mustard, yellow prepared mustard, sweet curry powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir to combine and turn heat up to medium-high. Once mixture starts to bubble, fold in potatoes. Sprinkle a bit more salt and pepper over it all. Then nestle the drumsticks into the potatoes and sauce, leaving the chicken skin exposed (do not cover in sauce).
  • Transfer skillet to hot oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and add in the green beans, snuggling them into the sauce. Return skillet to oven and bake for 20 minutes more, or until chicken is completely cooked through and potatoes are fork-tender. Serve hot.

  1. Hi! Im a huge fan!

    I made this and my husband and I agree it tasted amazing, but the sauce carmelized in the pan and burnt something wicked in the oven. What did I do wrong?

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  2. great flavors, honey mustard is a flavor I love but never make myself for some reason, also one pot is the perfect prep, vegetables, main dish, one pot, perfect, thank you
