This sweet, tangy chicken is the best dinner of the week
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. honey
1 1/2 tbsp. whole-grain mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
2 c. baby red potatoes halved (quartered if large)
2 tbsp. sprigs fresh rosemary, plus 1 tbsp. chopped
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard, and
garlic and season with salt and pepper. Whisk until combined. Add chicken thighs and toss until fully coated. Transfer to the fridge to marinate, at least 20 minutes and up to 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, prep potatoes: In a medium bowl, add potatoes and chopped rosemary and season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon oil and toss until combined. Set aside.
- In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, heat remaining tablespoon oil. Add chicken and sear, skin side down, 2 minutes, then flip and sear 2 minutes more. Add potatoes, nestling them between chicken, and top with rosemary sprigs.
- Transfer to the oven and bake until potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked through, 20 minutes. (If potatoes need longer to cook, transfer chicken to a cutting board to rest and continue cooking potatoes until tender.)
- Serve chicken and potatoes with pan drippings.
