Paleo Garlic Honey Mustard Chicken

29 Mar

I made this as a chicken drumstick dish, but this tasty sauce will work just as well for wings, thighs, breasts, you name it.  When baking in the oven I always recommend bone in, skin on for the most flavor.

Ingredients:

5 pounds chicken drumsticks

3 tbl. ghee

4 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 cup dijon mustard

1/3 cup honey

1 tbl. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. coconut aminos

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Kosher salt

Pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 425°F.  Lay the drumsticks across two baking sheets lined with non-stick foil.  Yes, Reynolds now makes non-stick aluminum foil and it is AMAZING!  Bake the chicken until cooked through and skin has crisped a bit, approximately 40 minutes.  Can also broil each baking sheet for about 2 minutes on high after baking to crisp the skin.  While the chicken is cooking, melt the ghee in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Once melted add the garlic and cook for 2-4 minutes, being careful not to brown.  Remove from heat and whisk in remaining ingredients seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.  Toss the cooked chicken in the sauce and serve.
