Introducing crunchy roast potatoes, caramelised red onions and succulent chicken thighs, all in one pan!
Sabato’s Balsamic Honey Mustard is the star of this dish. Whole mustard seeds, honey and Italian balsamic vinegar make every mouthful sweet, savoury and slightly crunchy!
If you want to use more than one pan to speed things up you can but if you have the time I recommend following the recipe step by step and marvelling at the lack of dishes you made in creating this mountain of deliciousness.
