Lightly sweetened honey mustard dressing flavors roasted chicken thighs and cauliflower. Sheet-Pan honey mustard chicken is a simple weeknight dinner with bold, zippy flavor!
The real beauty of sheet-pan honey mustard chicken and cauliflower is that it has the potential to please everyone at the table. The zippy honey mustard dressing adds fantastic flavor but is completely optional - adults can pour it on and kids can take a pass and eat plain old chicken if they please.
I also love this recipe because it can be a big chicken dinner or a big vegetable dinner with just a little bit of chicken on the side. The tangy and slightly sweet honey mustard dressing is delicious poured over all sorts of roasted vegetables and salad greens.
When I make this recipe again, I plan to add another sheet pan to roast Brussels sprouts or potatoes or asparagus. I love the honey mustard dressing and leftover shredded chicken over salad too, so don't forget to buy a bag of salad greens for lunch the next day.
The chicken, roasted with a brushing of honey mustard on top, is quite good. But it's the cauliflower that keeps calling me back to dish up seconds and thirds. It comes out crispy and caramelized and never again will I roast cauliflower without also roasting the leaves and stems! I wish I could go back through the decades to gather up all the cauliflower leaves I've thrown out so that I could roast them with olive oil and salt.
Here's How Sheet-Pan Honey Mustard Chicken Comes Together
- Whisk together honey mustard dressing
- Cut up cauliflower and put it on a sheet pan with olive oil and salt
- Add chicken thighs to the sheet-pan
- Roast 45 minutes, basting once with the honey mustard dressing
That's pretty much it. The details are below, but there aren't many details. This is a no-fuss, bang-it-out after work kind of meal.
