Baked chicken with Dijon and lime is a light chicken dinner, perfect for busy weekdays!
Baked chicken is always an easy, cheap weekday lunch solution. Take some chicken drumsticks, remove the skin, brush it with this Dijon lime coating and behind it in the oven. You can make this with chicken thighs or even breast if you prefer!
Serve these drumsticks with a big salad on the side and dinner is ready!
While I really love the taste of crispy chicken skin, you really don’t want to miss it here. The chicken drumsticks are coated with a creamy mixture that coats the chicken and browns while baking, it is delicious and easy to make. And if you fear removing skin from chicken bones, this easy tip will change your life! It basically uses two paper towels that give you grips that make it so much easier to remove and also less clutter.
