My first cook book ever had a recipe for mustard chicken. I cook it so often it is actually one of the first recipes I posted on my blog. I just remove the skin from some drumsticks and mix together mustard, rosemary, salt, pepper paprika. Spread it on an shove it in the oven. But your variation really had me intrigued. I am feeling a little disloyal to my all-time favourite, but this is going onto my to cook list!
