Ingredients

Scale

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Olive oil or spray
  • 12 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with foil, and spray or grease it with olive oil.
  2. Arrange drumsticks onto the pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, Dijon mustard, salt, curry powder, and black pepper. Generously brush the honey mixture onto the chicken, making sure the entire drumstick is covered with the honey glaze. Save leftover for basting throughout baking.

  5. While the chicken is cooking, wash, peel, and cut carrots into strips. Toss carrots with olive oil and salt in a large bowl.
  6. Once the chicken is finished cooking, remove from oven and cover with foil.
  7. Turn oven up to 450F and bake carrots for 10 minutes, until the thickest slices are golden and the tops are crispy.
