This recipe uses a cast iron skillet to sear boneless chicken thighs and potatoes, covers everything with a delicious honey mustard sauce and then bake in the oven for an easy dish.

Prep: 10Cook: 30Total: 40 minutes


  • 4 (6oz) chicken thighs (I used skinless, boneless)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb baby red potatoes, washed and cut into 1/2 inch size pieces
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (tamari if GF)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 8 oz green beans, washed and trimmed

Optional** for shiny glazing at end, brush with a little honey + olive oil mixed together after all done cooking.


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Pat chicken dry and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 
  3. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a cast iron skillet and once hot, sear chicken thighs over high heat for 3 minutes on each side.
  4. Remove chicken from skillet and add in diced potatoes to empty skillet (with chicken drippings).
  5. Allow potatoes to cook for 8-10 minutes or until browning on each side, stirring occasionally.
  6. While potatoes are cooking, whisk together garlic, mustard, honey, soy sauce, and olive oil in a large bowl. Split sauce in half, saving second half in a bowl for after cooking.
  7. Once potatoes are cooked, add chicken, potatoes, and green beans to the bowl with the sauce, tossing to coat evenly.
  8. Once coated, place everything back in skillet, pour all sauce into skillet, fitting everything in nicely.
  9. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or internal temperature of chicken reaches 160F.
  10. Pour rest of sauce over top.
  11. Serve warm and enjoy!


* My cast iron skillet was 10.25 inches but anything larger will also work.
