Hoedown Honey-Mustard BBQ Sticky Chicken – It’s Good Y’all!

The perfect chicken recipe that will leave everyone in awe. All of your friends and your family will love this dish, even the pickiest eater. You can adjust the spices based on your preferences, but however you might want it, it’s just too delicious to ignore. I have added this scrumptious chicken recipe to my beloved vintage recipe box that my mother gave to me. Only the best of the best recipes make it to this box.

Our friend over at Southern Bite has this to say about the recipe:

“Y’all this Honey Mustard BBQ Sticky Chicken is so delicious!  My family just absolutely loved it.  It’s as easy as mixing up the sauce and marinating it, then simply dumping it all in a dutch oven and cooking it.”

When I first tasted this, I didn’t know that it’s this easy to make. The chicken is so tender it’s as if a lot of methods had been applied for it to become that tender. And the sauce was so deliciously perfect it wasn’t possible that it’s easily made. But it is! This is an easy recipe that will totally blow you away.



3 pounds Tyson chicken legs and thighs (skin-on)

1 (18-ounce) bottle Kraft Original barbecue sauce

3 tablespoons Trader Joe’s honey

4 tablespoons Heinz Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons Heinz vinegar

½ teaspoon McCormick garlic powder



Add the chicken pieces to a gallon size zip-top bag.

In a small bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, honey, mustard, vinegar, and garlic powder. Pour the sauce over the chicken and seal the bag. Shake gently to coat the chicken and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator – the longer, the better. I usually allow mine to marinate for about 3 hours, but the marinating time isn’t necessary, it just gives the chicken more flavor.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray the inside of a large Dutch oven with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the chicken and sauce into the pot and bake uncovered for about 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked through.





Quick Tip: Different barbecue sauces will give it a different flavor, so experiment until you find one you just love.

Thanks again to Southern Bite for this amazing recipe.
