Honey Mustard Sheet Pan Chicken

Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

When it comes to weeknight meals, it doesn’t get much better than a sheet pan meal. The oven does all of the work, the dishes are minimal, and you’re left with a delicious dinner. Veggies and protein, all on one pan! It’s just right for a busy family or for making and having leftovers for a couple lunches! this Honey Mustard Sheet Pan Chicken with Brussels Sprouts is an easy weeknight meal that is especially delicious during the fall months.

I’m excited to share this recipe from our cookbook, Two Peas & Their Pod Cookbook. Our cookbook is filled with family friendly recipes that are approachable and made with everyday ingredients, just like this easy chicken dinner recipe. It is a family favorite and I think your family will love it too!

Use Bone-In Chicken Thighs

Instead of using an entire chicken, we like to use bone-in, skin-on thighs. They take a lot less time to cook, and the skin gets a golden-brown crispiness that adds some delicious flavor. Getting bone-in thighs keeps everything extra juicy while it bakes in the oven.

We don’t recommend using chicken breasts for this recipe because they tend to dry out more than thighs. The thighs are nice and juicy and perfect for sheet pan recipes.

Bring on the Brussels Sprouts

A lot of people don’t have Brussels sprouts very high on their list of favorite veggies. When they’re roasted just right, though, they get a delicious, caramelized crunch on the outer leaves and have amazing flavor! In this Honey-Mustard Chicken with Brussels Sprouts recipe, they crisp up right next to the chicken and absorb some amazing flavor from the juices in the pan. Even hesitant kids who give it a try admit it’s pretty good!

Easy Honey Mustard Sauce

The secret is in the sauce here! While this recipe would absolutely be delicious with just a little oil, salt, and pepper, I take a couple extra minutes to stir up a honey-mustard sauce. It’s a super simple recipe made from ingredients you probably already have, and it makes the chicken a little tangy and very delicious!

How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken

  • For this chicken recipe, you want the oven at 425°F to get the chicken and Brussels sprouts nice and crispy. Grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray. For easy clean up, you can line the pan with aluminum foil and spray it.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together 1⁄4 cup of the olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, the two mustards, honey, and garlic. Add salt and pepper, to your preference.
  • Grab your tongs and use them to dip the chicken thighs in the sauce bowl, coating both sides and then moving them onto the already-prepared baking sheet. Throw away any unused sauce.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts and red onion. Drizzle with your remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, giving it all a good toss until everything is totally coated. 
  • Arrange the sprouts and onion around the chicken on the baking sheet. Make sure they aren’t overlapping since we want everything to cook evenly and get that perfect, delicious crisp on the sprouts!
  • Give it all one last season with salt and pepper and admire your colorful, delicious dinner that’s about to make your house smell amazing.
  • Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until the chicken is golden brown and has an internal temperature of 165°F. The edges of the Brussels sprouts should be lightly browned and crispy.
  • Serve it right away and enjoy your delicious meal and your sink with minimal dishes!

    This recipe was easy to prepare and simply delicious. I made an extra batch of sauce to be served at the table which enhanced the goodness.

  2. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! Super easy to make, by the time the oven was preheated I had everything prepped! The only change I would make in the future is make a little more sauce as it was so good that I wanted my chicken coated more, and more drippings for over rice. Thanks for a great recipe!
    (tried to rate it 5 stars but the stars wouldn’t save)

  3. 5 stars
    Tasty dish. I agree with the other comments to have some extra sauce made for the Brussel sprouts and chicken + rice. Easy to prepare and super delicious.

  4. Several mentioned making addl sauce
    Do they mean what’s coated on the chicken to have extra ???
    Maybe boil it since raw chicken was unit they use to serve ???

  5. Love this recipe, just had it again tonight. I add a whole onion or sometimes even two…just a quarter of one is way too chintzy IMO.

  6. 5 stars
    I made this delicious meal last night to great reviews!
    Will make it again but wait to add the Brussels sprouts 15 min later.
    Smelled so good while cooking!

  7. 4 stars
    Made it last night with skinless thighs and it was delicious. My only change would be to roast the sprouts and onions on a separate pan for less time. The sprouts were way too done for me. I will definitely make it again. It would be good with boneless breasts too. And agree, set a little sauce aside before you coat your chicken. It was very good.

  8. 5 stars
    The vinaigrette is so delicious, I was eating it by the teaspoon. All around delicious recipe that was easy to make. Made some brown rice in the instant pot while cooking the rest of the meal.

  9. 4 stars
    The chicken was good but people wondered where the mustard was. I’m going to make it again & marinate the chicken in the mustard sauce for a while, maybe even overnight to see if I can capture more of the mustard flavor.

  10. 4 stars
    I had chicken tenders already so used those. Family liked it! I baked at 375 degrees instead of 425 so as not to dry out the breasts. Meat turned out moist and saucy, not crispy but still delicious. Brussels sprouts were perfect.

  11. I made this tonight and OMG it was delicious. This is definitely going to be a regular dinner item from now on. So good!!!

    I doubled the sauce and didn’t discard after I dipped the chicken in it. I threw the leftover sauce in a pan and brought it to a boil. So yummy!!

  12. Excellent and so easy! Will be on rotation in our house. I used boneless skinless thighs bc that what I had on hand and didn’t have to adjust the time too much.

  13. 5 stars
    Finally a recipe with clear, detailed directions. I wouldn’t change a thing about the meal. It was absolutely delicious, super easy, and a quick cleanup.

  14. 3 stars
    Flavor-wise, this is delicious. Unfortunately the cooking times don’t work for both the Brussels sprouts and the chicken at the same time. I ended up with burnt sprouts and rubbery chicken skins.

    If you want to use one pan, I’d suggests cooking the bone-in thighs longer (40-45) and not adding the Brussels sprouts until the last 15-20 minutes.

  15. Can I use regular yellow mustard if I don’t have Dijon mustard? (I do have whole grain mustard) Thank you!

  16. Loved this recipe i used Dijon mustard and regular yellow mustard.also added little potatoes in with the brussel sprouts and i used a whole red onion . i only had boneless skinless chicken thighs this came out so yummy thanks for the recipe

  17. 5 stars
    Made this tonight. After reading comments I cooked chicken alone for 20 mins or so then added the veggies. Brushed the sprouts with extra sauce,. Made mashed potatoes to round it off. No changes made to recipe, it was excellent. Thank you so much!

  18. Question… 525 calories seems high for a serving of this delicious sounding dish… am I reading that correctly?
