My Girl Paula: Bobby's baked chicken with dijon and lime

This was a big hit tonight for dinner, my 2 yr old had 3 helpings plus he finished his sister's chicken. This will be something i make again, for sure. This is a Bobby Deen recipe, but I couldn't pass it up it just sounded so good. I served it with roasted veggies (consited of broccoli, egg plant, red, green and yellow bell pepper and onion) and with white rice.

1 (3 1/2lbs) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp mayo
1 garlic clove, minced
finely grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 1 lime
3/4 pepper
salt to taste
chopped parsley to garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime zest and juice and pepper. Season the chicken generously with salt. Pour the mixture over the chicken, tossed well to coat. In a large baking pan, arrange chicken in a single layer. bake until it is cooked through; breasts take about 30 mins and legs will need 5 -10 mins more. Serve the chicken with pan juices drizzled over and garnished with chopped parsley.
