Oven Braised Mustard Chicken

We’re still pretty (very!) new to this whole blogging thing. And sometimes I really want to write down and publish a recipe, because I liked it enough to have it in our repertoire, but I feel like I have very little creative to say about it. This was my dilemma with this dish. Usually I solve this problem by making Selim, who is by far and away the more creative of this pair, write the post. I couldn’t bully him into it this time, so here we are. Don’t judge too much 😉

We’ve been on a little bit of a kick recently, where we cook meat in the oven all afternoon at a low temperature. So far it’s turned out great! This mustard chicken was our latest experiment. It yielded a tasty and fall-off-the-bone chicken, plus flavorful veggies and broth to accompany it.
