Take 5 ingredients most of us always have at home - and in 5 minutes and you can have a healthy dinner in the oven. Match with a spinach salad or green peas from the freezer plus rice - and dinner’s done in about a half hour. More good news - it’s shy on fat and calories and if you are cooking for one - the downsizing math’s a snap.

Ingredients

  • Serves: 3
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 6 to 8 chicken drumsticks or thighs
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) regular Dijon or grainy mustard
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7.5 mL) curry powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7.5 mL) paprika (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Pull skin from chicken only if you wish. Place on an oiled or foil-lined baking sheet.

  2. Stir remaining ingredients together. Brush all over each piece of chicken.

  3. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 15 minutes. Baste again and continue roasting until chicken feels springy when pressed, from 15 to 25 more minutes.

Wonderful with spinach, boy choy or peas and baked potatoes.
