Baked "Grill" Chicken
W/ Mini  Potatoes

1 whole chicken or 4-6 pieces cut up (if using pieces, I use bone-in, skin-on)

mini potatoes

for the seasoning:

2 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons mustard

2 tablespoons honey

4 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons dry onion flakes (may use chopped fresh onion instead)

2 tablespoons mesquite seasoning*

I use purchased mesquite seasoning but if you want to make your own:

  • 1 ½ Tbsp paprika

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp brown sugar

  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • ½ tsp onion flakes

  • ½ tsp rosemary

  • ½ tsp marjoram

  • ¼ tsp sage

  • ¼ tsp ground mustard seed

  • ¼ tsp chipotle powder (or crushed pepper flakes)

Mix all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.

Drizzle olive oil to cover the bottom of a baking pan.

Rub seasoning mix on all sides of the chicken.

Place skin down in the pan.

Place chicken, skin down,  in baking pan. Arrange mini potatoes around and over the chicken.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cover with foil.

Bake in 350F for 50 minutes.

Remove foil and bake 15 minutes longer.
