This honey soy mustard chicken and potato tray bake is an easy recipe using drumsticks or chicken pieces


  • 6-8 chicken drumsticks or chicken pieces
  • 3-4 medium potatoes (roasting variety)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp wholegrain mustard


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius (approx 400 f)
  2. Prepare a large roasting or baking tray by lining with baking paper
  3. Pat the chicken drumsticks or pieces dry with paper towel, place in the tray
  4. Wash the potatoes, I don’t peel them, cut into bite size pieces, add to the tray with the chicken
  5. Add the oil to the chicken and potatoes and make sure they are evenly covered with oil, I use my hands
  6. In a small bowl or measuring jug mix together the soy sauce, honey and mustard. If your honey is not liquid you may need to warm it so that it mixes more easily
  7. Pour the honey soy mix over the chicken and potatoes
  8. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes, turn the chicken and potatoes and bake for a further 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces.
  9. At this point, the tray bake should be ready and the source thickened/become a little yummy and sticky, sometimes this is not the case if the chicken has released a lot of liquid during cooking. If your sauce is still runny, remove the chicken and potatoes from the tray and set aside. Increase the heat on the oven a little and continue cooking the sauce for another 5 or so minutes. Once thickened and yummy looking pour this over your chicken and potatoes
  10. Serve with a salad or steamed green vegetables


  • Make sure you use a roasting style potato, ie one with a floury texture. I like Agria. but see above in the recipe post for some other suggestions
  • As this recipe contains honey it is not suitable for children under one year of age
  • To make this recipe gluten free you will need to select a gluten-free¬†soy sauce such as Tamari
