Honey Mustard Chicken Ingredients
Chicken Thighs: we’re using bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs for this recipe and you’ll need six of them.
Veggies: this one pan dinner is packed with a combination of fresh vegetables, including butternut squash and Brussels sprouts. For even more flavor and color, one large red onion is chopped and added to the mix as well.
Whole Grain and Dijon Mustard: both the chicken and veggies are coated in tangy and flavorful mustard based marinades.
Honey: to add a little sweetness we’re adding honey to this sheet pan dinner for that perfect honey mustard flavor.
Garlic & Herbs: fresh garlic, thyme, and a little paprika are all included to kick up the flavor.
Apple Cider Vinegar: last but not least, you’ll also need a bit of apple cider vinegar.
Recipe Ingredient Substitutions
- Chicken – don’t have bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs? You can easily swap them for boneless skinless chicken thighs instead. You could also swap the thighs for boneless skinless chicken breast, however you’ll likely need to reduce the cooking time for the chicken to ensure that it does not dry out. If using boneless skinless chicken breast, I’d recommend letting the vegetables bake for 10 minutes first and then adding the chicken breast. This will help the chicken stay juicy and ensure the veggies are still tender.
- Veggies – this recipe is pretty forgiving so you can easily swap the butternut squash for cubed sweet potato or the brussels sprouts for broccoli or cauliflower.
- Honey – don’t have honey? swap it for pure maple syrup instead.
Helpful Kitchen Tools
How to Make Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs and Veggies
Step One: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Step Two: Add the chicken thighs, whole grain mustard, honey, salt, pepper, and paprika to a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined and the chicken thighs are well coated.
Step Three: Place the chicken on a large sheet pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Roast at 425 degrees, on the middle rack of your oven, for 10 minutes.
Step Four: While chicken is cooing, add the veggies, garlic, thyme, dijon mustard, honey, oil, salt, and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Toss until everything is combined and the veggies are coated.
Step Six: After the chicken thighs have roasted for 10 minutes, remove them from the oven and scatter the prepped veggies in an even layer around the chicken. Try to place the Brussels sprouts cut side down to ensure they brown well.
Step Seven: Return the sheet pan to the oven and roast for another 25-30 minutes, tossing the veggies every 7-10 minutes or so to prevent them from becoming too brown. Once the veggies are tender and the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees remove from the oven. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Make Ahead Tips
- Marinate the chicken in advance: season the chicken thighs up to a day in advance and then place in an air-tight container in the fridge.
- Chop the veggies in advance: to save even more time, go ahead and prep the vegetables up to two days advance and store in the fridge until you are ready to use.
- Make the honey mustard marinades in advance: another option is to make the honey mustard marinades for both the chicken and the veggies and store in separate containers until you are ready to make your sheet pan dinner.
The Best Way to Store and Reheat
Store any leftover chicken and veggies in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
To reheat, you can either do so microwave for 1-2 minutes at a time until warmed through. Another option is to reheat the leftovers in the oven at 350 degrees until warmed through.

Very good one pan meal! Easy prep. I didn’t have whole grain mustard so subbed dijon. I put the chicken directly on the pan and drizzled the marinade onto the chicken, which resulted in sauce on the pan that burned when cooking. Next time, I’ll follow the directions and put the marinade on the chicken in a separate dish and then transfer it to the pan. It’s an easy recipe to use different veggies and I think the marinade would be delicious on pork loin or pork chops!
This was so delicious and easy to make. Even got 5 stars from my very picky 13 year old. Seriously – he even ate the brussel sprouts. It all went so great together – I didn’t change a thing from the posted recipe – except that due to my pan size I cooked the thighs and veggies in two separate pans and ovens. So good. Thank you!!
This was delicious! I also used cauliflower and delicata squash. Came out great.
Really excellent layers of flavor. Easy to assemble and came out delicious! Thank you!
Husband loved it! Quick and easy to make, smells amazing!
This was so easy and so delicious! The perfect fall flavors–I will definitely be making this again!
I’m so happy you loved it, Sarah!
