One Pan Dijon Chicken and Potatoes Recipe …the caramelized onions, roasted potatoes, juicy chicken, and dijon glaze give this dish so much flavor!

I absolutely love one pan meals! They are all the rage right now, and for good reason! You just can’t beat cooking the whole meal in one pan. It really helps marinate all the wonderful flavors together. The sauce on this dish is seriously divine. It really takes this dijon mustard chicken over the top. I was so glad it made a lot, so I could pour it over the chicken and potatoes once they were plated.

If you love dijon, you have to make this dish. I promise, you will not be disappointed. The flavors in this dish are unreal! It tastes like it came straight from the restaurant. It definitely has more of a sweeter sauce, so feel free to cut back on the sugar if you don’t want the sauce to be as sweet.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and set aside.

Cook bacon in a cast iron skillet (or oven-safe nonstick skillet) over medium heat, until crisp. Turn half way through. Remove to paper-towel lined plate. Chop bacon and set aside. Drain off all but 1 Tablespoon grease.

Meanwhile, whisk together the broth, vinegar, mustard, garlic, sugar and paprika in a small bowl. Set aside.

Add 1 Tablespoon bacon grease and 2 Tablespoons butter to the pan, and then add in the onion and saute 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and saute an additional 5 minutes. Place the chicken, including any juices that have collected back in the skillet. Pour the broth mixture over the chicken and simmer for 1 minute.

Place pan in the preheated oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are fork tender. Remove from the oven and spoon the sauce over the top. Top with chopped bacon and parsley. Serve while hot.

    This looks SOOOOO yummy!! I bet it could also be made in the crock pot. Mine can be used on top of the stove then put into the “heating unit” & cooked slowly. Mmmmmm, I look forward to being able to smell this for hours, cooking, marrying flavors in the privacy & darkness that is the Crock Of LOVE!!!

    Just cooked this recipe and it was really delicious! Awesome! One important hint: I actually cooked it with a vegan replacement product instead of chicken, and thx to ur sophisticated herbs- and spices mix you couldnt really tell the difference! :D

    In your directions you state “Place the chicken, including any juices that have collected back in the skillet.”  I read this to mean the chicken should have been in the pan beforehand.  Is that the case?  I didn’t see a prior step where it said to cook/brown chicken…only to season it.  Of course I may be reading this incorrectly.
    Thanks for your help.
