Easy, flavor-packed garlic Dijon chicken is the perfect weeknight meal.


  • 1.5 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (8 pieces)
  • Salt
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into large pieces

For Garlic Dijon Sauce

  • 1/3 cup Private Reserve Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tsp quality Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp quality honey
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 3/4 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Take chicken out of the fridge. Pat dry and season on both sides with salt. Set aside for a few minutes.
  3. Make the honey garlic Dijon sauce. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, spices, and salt. Mix.
  4. Add chicken to the honey garlic Dijon sauce. Coat each piece well with the sauce, then transfer chicken to a large  lightly-oiled cast iron skillet (or baking sheet). Pour any Dijon sauce left in bowl on top. Add the onions.
  5. Bake in heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken thighs are fully cooked through (internal temperature should register 165 degrees F)
  6. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve hot with Lebanese Rice and loaded Balela salad or this simple 3-ingredient Mediterranean salad (see additional suggestions above)
