Simple mustard BBQ roasted chicken makes for an easy meal the whole family will love. Roasted in the oven, no one would ever guess how easy it is to make this chicken recipe.
A while back, I shared my spicy mustard BBQ sauce recipe. It is perfect for adding to your BBQ sauce collection if you are having a party where BBQ sauce makes a perfect condiment or if you and your family just like to try additional sauces. Let me just tell you, it works wonderfully with chicken!
On a night when I definitely didn’t want to fire up the grill or smoker (uh, meaning the mister had late meetings!), I decided to oven roast my chicken instead. Ready in a jiffy, I basted my chicken with the mustard BBQ sauce the last few minutes it was cooking and then served it alongside my cheesy cauliflower and a salad. Yum!
