From the Test Kitchen

We’re elevating seared chicken in this dish by whipping up a vibrant combo of dijon mustard, honey, oregano, and more, which both coats the chicken before baking and creates an easy sauce for serving. Simple sides of mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans and carrots tie together the classic meal.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the chicken:
1 Prepare & roast the chicken:

Remove the honey and ghee from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. To make the sauce, in a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, oregano, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the sauce to a small bowl and set aside for serving. Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Add to the large bowl of remaining sauce; turn to thoroughly coat. Transfer to the sheet pan. Bake 19 to 21 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer to a cutting board.
