Main Ingredients

  • 4 Organic Chicken Breasts
  • 1 bag Baby Potatoes

Lemon Chicken Glaze

  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
  • 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • Zest of one medium-sized lemon
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Parsley Garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Wash Chicken Breasts and pat dry
  • In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, Dijon and whole-grain mustard, dried thyme,  dried rosemary, and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  • Season halved potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • Cut four sheets of foil, about 12-inches long. Divide potatoes into 4 equal portions and add to the center of each foil in a single layer.
  • Fold up all 4 sides of each foil packet. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine.
  • Top each packet with the chicken. Using your fingers or a brush, work the mustard mixture onto both sides of the chicken. Top with lemon slices.
  • Fold the sides of the foil over the chicken, covering completely and sealing the packets closed. Place foil packets in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender about 25-30 minutes.*
