Stonewall Kitchen Spicy Honey Mustard

So, there's this little recipe contest - and I was invited to join in!  I was sent an email by Stonewall Kitchen asking for my participation in creating a recipe using one of their mustards.

I am a big fan of Stonewall Kitchen, as evidenced here , here, and here.

I requested the spicy honey mustard and my recipe ideas ranged from potato salad, to a grilled pork loin, and finally to roast chicken.  Truth be told, I'm kind of addicted to dipping wedges of swiss cheese into the mustard, but that's not what this contest is about!

I came up with the easiest glaze ever and simply poured it over a whole chicken and roasted it.  Easy to the max!

I had a great assistant in our son, Josh, who obliged by taking pictures during the cooking process - we even managed to capture a few "pouring" shots.

apricot jam was added to a saucepan

then the delectable spicy honey mustard

some granulated garlic

orange juice

I then heated the saucepan over medium-low heat for about twenty minutes, until the mixture reduced and thickened

Next I prepared the whole chicken.  I rinsed it and removed all of the innards.  I decided to stuff the cavity with orange wedges and onion wedges

I poured the cooled glaze over the chicken and added two pats of butter (not shown)

fresh out of the oven - can you see the steam?

dinner is served - steamed asparagus, garlic bread and roasted veggies complement the chicken

Roast chicken with Stonewall Kitchen spicy honey mustard glaze

1/2 cup Stonewall Kitchen spicy honey mustard
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup apricot jam
3 T granulated garlic

1 whole, rinsed and cleaned chicken
salt, pepper
onion wedges
orange wedges

Roast chicken with glaze, uncovered, for at least 1 1/2 hours (follow the cooking directions on the chicken package, it should give a range for the poundage) or until internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Allow chicken to rest before carving.


  1. YUM! You're so darn creative. I never would have thought to do that to chicken!

    Once I get an oven back Im going to try this. (with Aussie honey mustard stuff since we dont get the Stonewall)

  2. Wow that's wonderful that you were asked to join in the contest. That glaze is nice and simple yet I'm sure it packs a punch of flavour. Good luck.
