I’m a big fan of easy meals and what could be easier than throwing some chicken into a pan, covering it with a tasty sauce and roasting it? This roasted chicken is covered in a quick, easy and tasty homemade honey dijon sauce. Chicken broth is added to the sauce to help make sure that the sauce does cook off and burn on the edges of the pan, this way you will end up with plenty of sauce to drizzle on your chicken and sides! Speaking of sides, you can easily make some while the chicken roasts! For this meal I steamed some broccoli and made some mashed potatoes and the honey dijon sauce was amazing on everything!
