Bobby Deen's Baked Chicken With Dijon and Lime

A Healthier Favorite From the Deen Family

After learning she has Type 2 diabetes, Paula Deen changed her eating habits to shed pounds.
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min


  • 1 (3 1/2 lb) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 3 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs mayo
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Finely grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 1 lime
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Parsley to garnish, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400.

    Rinse the chicken and pat dry.

    In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime zest and juice and pepper.

    Season the chicken generously with salt.

    Pour the mustard-mayo mixture over the chicken, tossing well to coat.

    In a large baking pan, arrange the chicken in a single layer. Bake until it is cooked through; breasts take about 30 minutes and legs will need 5 to 10 minutes more.

    Serve the chicken with pan juices drizzled over top and garnished with chopped parsley.
