Make this for your Mum: honey and mustard chicken casserole

Thinking of ways to treat your Mum this Sunday 13th May? You could bring her breakfast in bed; make her a homemade posie; go fly a kite with her in the park or, you could whip up this honey and mustard chicken casserole with zesty gremolata. Whatever you choose to make your Mum feel extra special, we’re sure she will be impressed.
Ingredients (serves 4 people)
1 onion, sliced
4 Tbsp honey
4 Tbsp Dijon mustard
8 chicken pieces
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the gremolata
3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
Zest of 1 lemon
1 cup fresh parsley (flat-leaf parsley if you can get it)


1. For the gremolata, finely chop the parsley, garlic and lemon zest and set to one side. If you’ve got a Magimix, pop all of these ingredients in and blitz in seconds.
2. For the chicken, place the sliced onion and chicken pieces into a casserole dish (we used the Le Creuset Heart Shaped Casserole). Mix in the honey and mustard and allow to marinate for at least half an hour, while pre-heating the oven to 200°C. Season with salt and pepper and roast, with the lid off, for 50 minutes. The honey will brown your chicken nicely.
3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with gremolata.
4. Serve hot or cold and with roast potatoes or salad.
Made and served in the beautiful Le Creuset heart-shaped stoneware casserole dish, we hope this dish is a winner for you and your family this weekend.
