'Sticky Chicken' and Mustard Mashed Yukons

Here is an easy meal that your kids will love! My daughter licks her plate clean whenever we have this and is always asking for it. And not only is it easy to make, it's budget friendly too! You can find chicken legs for around 99 cents a pound at some grocery stores. Paired with the chicken are creamy, textured Yukon golds lightly seasoned with a little mustard. Your kids will never even know its in there, and eat it up! Serve the extra sauce from the chicken over the potatoes.

Sticky chicken

  • 8 chicken legs, skin removed
  • 3/4 c. Barbecue sauce(I use sweet baby ray's)
  • 1/2 c. Maple Syrup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 8x8" pan(at least 1" deep) and place the chicken legs on it. In a small bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce and syrup. Pour over the chicken, covering all surfaces of the legs. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes. *make sure your chicken is cooked all the way through before serving!

Mustard Mashed Yukon's

  • 5 Large Yukon Gold potatoes, Washed, skin-on
  • 2 T. Butter
  • Salt and pepper tt.
  • 1/4 c. Milk
  • 2 T. Dijon Mustard
Slice the potatoes into 1" cubes and place in a large saucepan. Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil on high heat. Let the potatoes simmer until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain the water and place the cooked potatoes back in the saucepan. Add the butter, salt and pepper, milk and mustard. Puree using and electric or immersion blender until seasonings are mixed in.

  1. I'm trying this tonight. It looked so yummy! I was looking for something to make and you posted it at the best time. I'll let you know what we think. The potatoes, I had some mashed leftovers, so I'm trying that. We'll see how that turns out. :)
