This Dutch Oven Honey Mustard BBQ Chicken and Potatoes recipe is the ultimate one pot comfort food meal. 

A pot of Honey Mustard BBQ Chicken garnished with fresh herbs

Hey y’all! I am thrilled to be sharing a little bit of my favorite food ideas with you today! I’m Larisha and you can find my fiance and I over on We’re Parents!

It officially snowed here for the first time this year, which means I’m in full gear for comfort food.  I want something that it going to be warm and filling and make my heart happy. This dish does just that.

Once upon a time, I rarely liked vegetables.  I wasn’t open to trying new foods.  The thought of going to someone even like Panera was a no go for me because things like “tomato basil bread” were just too outside of my comfort zone.  Thank goodness I outgrew that travesty huh!? I vowed that when I became a parent myself that I would make sure that my own girls had an open mind to trying to things, loved vegetables, knew their way around the kitchen, and had a positive, loving relationship with healthy foods.

The Ultimate Comfort Meal

One way I do that is with meals like this Dutch Oven Honey Mustard BBQ Chicken and Potatoes. Delicious homemade honey mustard bbq sauce seeps into this chicken to make it burst with flavor. Paired with crispy bacon and the sweetness of potatoes, all while simmering in a bucket of spices.  It’s truly a comfort food classic reimagined. Did I mention you do all of this in one pot for insanely easy clean up? It really is the perfect winter meal.
