Prep chicken - Clean, skin, wash and pat dry the chicken legs. Season with salt and pepper. Coat each piece of chicken with flour and dust off excess. Set aside. Pro tip - Too much water in the chicken will result in too much liquid in the finished dish.
Sear chicken - In a large skillet, over medium-high heat add the olive oil and butter. Next, add the chicken to the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Then, add the honey and onions and saute for 2 minutes more until the onions are translucent. Pro tip - Using a cast-iron skillet gives wonderful color to the chicken.
Honey mustard sauce - Add the soy sauce, honey, mustard, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper. Followed by the chicken broth. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes on medium-low heat until the chicken is tender. The internal temperature of the chicken when cooked should be about 165 F on a meat thermometer.Pro tip - The flour coating on the chicken helps thicken the honey mustard sauce.
Garnish - Add the lemon juice and sprinkle some chopped parsley over the chicken.
Spices - you can add other spices such as a sprinkle of cumin or ground ginger too.
Herbs - I love a sprinkle of chopped parsley but, a few sprigs of thyme and a few sprigs of rosemary.
Chicken - You can use boneless or bone-in chicken thighs, legs, or chicken breast. If you use chicken breast make sure to adjust the cooking temperature accordingly.
Instant pot - do the same process as above but in an instant pot.
After you add all the honey mustard sauce ingredients cover the instant pot lid and
cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.
Use quick release and garnish with chopped parsley and lemon juice.
