Paleo Mustard Glazed Chicken

Here’s another simple and tasty recipe to make for dinner – Paleo Mustard Glazed Chicken. The mustard was not overwhelming at all even though it uses two tablespoons of it. I chose to use spicy brown mustard and I’m sure any mustard will do.

I also used butter instead of coconut oil as my husband doesn’t like the taste of coconut oil in everything we eat and it’s a staple on our paleo diet.


The chicken will only bake for 45 minutes or less and then you’ll get a juicy and skin crusty taste.

It does use 1/4 cup of melted butter — perhaps that’s why it’s so yummy! Ready for the recipe? Here it is …


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted (I used butter)
  • 2 Tablespoons of stone ground mustard  or mustard of your choosing(gluten free)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs ( used four as there were only two of us eating but I kept the rest of the measurements the same)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine melted butter, mustard, black pepper, salt, and sage.
  3. Place chicken thighs in an oven-safe dish and brush the mustard mixture evenly over each one.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees. (insert an oven thermometer into the center of  the chicken thigh)

That’s it! I served this with another recipe we’ve tried before called Maple Roasted Carrots, Apples and Onions. A great pairing!
