Dijon-Baked Chicken with Rice and Broccoli

If you forget to marinate this overnight, don't worry; it's still great if you cook the chicken in the sauce as soon as you make it. It['s just better when it marinates.]

Total Time:
1 hr 15 min
Prep:
15 min
Cook:
1 hr

Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 10 to 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons frozen chopped onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Asian-style hot chili sauce (can be chili-garlic sauce)
  • 1 1/2 cups basmati or white rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 5 cups frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/8 teaspoon your favorite supermarket-style seasoning mix
Directions

The night before: Unravel thighs to flatten and scrunch together in a large shallow oven-safe pan. Combine the following in a small mixing bowl in this order: spices, honey, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and hot chili sauce. Stir. Pour evenly over chicken. Flip the chicken around with a fork until each piece is well coated. End by making sure the rough side of the thigh is down. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The next day: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine rice and water in a larger oven-safe pot. Stir. Cover and place in preheated oven.

Turn chicken over with a fork. Place in preheated oven, beside rice. Set timer for 50 minutes. About halfway through the cooking time for chicken, I like to flip the chicken over again. When the timer rings for chicken, turn off heat but leave it in the oven.

Rinse broccoli in colander. Place in a microwave-safe pot or casserole dish with lid. Cover, then microwave at high for 5 minutes. When timer rings, add seasoning mix to broccoli.

It was just okay, we didn't have rice because my hubby is on a diet, maybe that was it was needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great glaze for chicken. Would be good on salmon as well. I used skin on thighs and browned the chicken in an oven proof skillet first. Brushed on the sauce then baked. It was a hit with everyone. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my goodness! SO good! I marinated the chicken for about 4-5 hours. Next time I'll sprinkle the chicken with a little salt first. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this for several years now. I usually have everything on hand except the chili sauce so I don't add that. The chicken is so tender and flavorful. I make the rice in a rice cooker and add more vegetables than just the broccoli but this is so good, you should try it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really really good! I did marinate the chicken overnight and followed directions for marinade using Sriracha hot sauce and it came out perfect! Could absolutely use with any type of chicken bone-in or not. Awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very delicious and easy to make. Family all loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this recipe makes a great sauce for chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is yummy. I dialed back the heat so my daughter would eat it and it was a hit. I didn't have time to marinate it and it was still yummy. The sauce was a little loose in the pan so I thickened it up in a saucepan with a cornstarch slury. We're looking forward to leftovers tonight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This a perfect make ahead meal. Especially when out of town visitors arrive. Make it the night before, pop it into the oven after a day of sight seeing. I make my rice in a rice cooker. I serve it with a fresh veg (usually steamed broccoli) or a salad. Rave reviews...always! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made the chicken only - Family loved it Rave reviews! I served it with Coconut rice - They worked well with each other! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it! I made the chicken only. Had to make a few modifications to accommodate what I had on hand. Used fresh chopped shallots instead of the frozen onions. Also left out the chili sauce as I didnt have any (subbed a few dashes of Tobasco, but its not quite the same, so I wouldn't recommend it) Really delicious. My husband loved it too, and he can be picky. If you don't like spicy, leave out the pepper flakes and chili sauce and it will still be awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor is incredible!!! I chose to skip the rice and broccoli, for a Mediteranean Curry couscous. I left out the curry and anything remotely spicy from the seasonings because our 1 and 4-yr-old wouldn't like it. I was afraid I might ruin the taste by taking so many spices out, but the curry-flavored couscous was the PERFECT compliment and it had even our pickiest eater coming back for thirds!!! Thanks for a winning recipe that will stay in our family for years! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor is to die for.... i use all my favorite seasonings. i will say i didnt have any honey..... so i opted for syrup it was still good. My fiance loved it... it was the first time he enjoyed baked chicken ever..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think people that don't like this recipe don't like curry or spicey. I made this as stated with whole grain dijon mustard because that's all I had. I steamed the broccoli and used my rice cooker for the rice. All I can say is that we loved it and it was very hard to not just keep eating it! It was a bit spicey for my daughters taste, but my husband and I loved it. The chicken thighs were very tender and moist! A keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family and I were very happy with the chicken! I found it to be very easy and it is a great make ahead meal. I only used the chicken part of this recipe and it was very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I get so irritated when I read the low rated reviews by people who don't know how to adjust spices for their own preference or who didnt even taste the meal. If something has red pepper flakes, dijon mustard and hot chili sauce in it, yeah, it'll likely be spicy.You may try omitting a spice if you are sensitive rather than panning the recipe. I'll admit this dish has a certain aroma that may be more pleasing to some than others, but for goodness sake, take a bite. My ten year old can, you can. And she loved it. My family was bored by the same old chicken and this was a refreshing change. I served it with the Neely's " Perfect Rice" and it was a hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is too spicy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So ... This is the first non-processed meal i have ever made (successfully, last time i tried meat loaf and turned the oven on to self clean [cut me some slack, i'm a bachelor].) I got confused with the recipe because it calls for these frozen chopped onions in the ingredients, but never mentions it again. Overall though, easy to make. Also, it tasted good. almost had a thai peanut chicken taste. Maybe I made it wrong, I dont know. I am looking forward to leftovers though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not like this recipe at all. I was so excited to try it after reading all of the recipes but very disappointed after actually making it. I will not be making this again :( item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was an excellent dish. All of the ingredients combined perfectly to make an easy and delicious chicken dinner. Hubby loved it and asked me to make sure I made it again. I used boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious even without marinating chicken overnight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken was outstanding! We didn't even marinate it for an hour. Cut the cooking time a little. Served with quinoa and green peas, and a vegetable saute on the side. Super fab! My husband loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was really yummy!! I love recipes that I can get ready the night before and just toss in the oven when everyone gets home. I can't wait to eat the leftovers! Unfortunately, there is not enough for everyone! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family and they liked it too. I did not use the chili sauce, to not make it too spicy for my kids. It was delicious. Using the thighs, you have nice tasty chicken that is not dry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It made my house smell horrible. It didn't even look good. I was not even able to eat it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was such an easy dish to prepare!! My Children, who do not like chicken too much, absolutily loved this dish. This will be a regular in my family. Laura California item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is yummy. The only thing that I did to make it better was to reserve some of the marinade to drizzle over the chicken before serving because what is in the pan after cooking is watery. Trust me, it is so much better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family and I loved this dish! The marinade is awesome!!! I doubled the recipe and added skinned and boned chicken breasts that I cut in half. I am going to experiment with different chicken pieces and possibly pork down the road. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe was effortless and delicious! I substituted curry paste in place of curry powder and it gave it a nice complex taste. A definite repeat recipe! Yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was delicious and only marinated for 5 hours. A definite repeat. I used curry paste instead of curry powder and had a gourmet mustard with full grain, thus only put in half of recommended amount. I may try this recipe next time with chicken wings and drumsticks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had some chicken thighs to use up and found this recipe. My husband is still talking about how delicious it was! Even my 13 month old enjoyed it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick and easy recipe. Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful recipe. I substituted chopped shallots for the chopped onions, omitted the red pepper flakes, and used more Asian hot chili sauce (I like the complex, hot, flavor). The chicken thighs I used were small and only needed about 40 minutes to bake. I made this for the second time today and made extra marinade to try with something else. Since the chicken needed to marinate overnight, I marinated a salmon fillet for an hour before baking for 10-15 minutes. The flavor was exceptional. I think this marinade would work well with other fish or even with pork. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Whoa mama this is a good recipe. The whole family went back for 2nds and kept saying things like ?this is good? and ?put this in your make again file? and when their mouths were full they would point to the dish with their forks and nod their heads up and down. There are no leftovers for a weekday evening meal. I did a short broil at the end for color and I cut the red pepper flakes in half (sensitive palettes at my place) and think that the recipe has that perfect blend of heat, sweet, and mustard flavors. A 10 out of 10 !!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was worried that the chicken would come out bland since I didn't marinate it overnight, but it came out great. I made sure to make a double helping of the sauce and the chicken was drenched in it as it baked. Chicken was great and the left over sauce allowed my family to have an extra kick to their rice if they wanted it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken recipe was a super hit. When my sister got home, she said, ?something smells really good?? Everybody at the house liked, though it was a bit spicy for my taste. I will omit one of the spicy ingredients. Adding toasted sesame seeds to garnish it when I served it, added a nice nutty taste that made it even more delicious. It will definitely be served at our dinner table again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I only had time to marinate the chicken for about 2 hours, but it was so good, and moist! I did not have curry on hand nor the chili paste, so i improvised with red curry paste, red pepper (cayenne). It was a hit, even my 2 year old liked it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my boyfriend last night, it came out fantastic, and was super easy to make! I'll be making it again in a few weeks,and I'm looking forward to the leftovers! I didn't use chicken thighs, I used thin sliced boneless, which speeded up the baking time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
...about curry yet. I'm not a big fan of curry, but thought I would try this recipe anyway for something different. I thought it was okay, but the folks I served it to seemed to really like it - they took the leftovers home anyway. It might improve on me with a little less mustard. item not reviewed by moderator and published
