Mustard Crusted Chicken

I saw Rachael Ray (whom I actually despise) make something on this order and realized that this was one of the five things she has ever cooked that Marcus and I would consider eating.  I’m glad I took a whack at it because this is simply delish.

This recipe is extremely easy to modify, based on the number of mouths you need to feed.  In my experience, I find that I’m usually in the mood for 1-2 chicken legs while Marcus is more of the persuasion that 2-3 is a solid meal.

Since Rachael’s recipe was basically un-findable on the interwebs, this is how we do in our house.


  • 5-6 chicken legs
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 c dijon mustard with seeds
  • A splash of lemon juice
  • ~1/2 t oregano
  • ~1/4 t red pepper flakes
  • 1 t garlic, minced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Season chicken legs with salt and pepper
  • Heat olive oil in frying pan over medium-high heat.  Brown chicken legs (approximately 2 min/side).  Remove from pan and place in a small casserole dish
  • In a small bowl, combine mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, red pepper flakes and garlic
  • Paint mustard glaze onto chicken legs
  • Place in oven and bake for ~30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked-through
