Here's a great way to serve chicken that is both flavorful and moist, and is great with chicken pieces, Guinea Hens or baby chickens (Poussin); spare ribs, kebabs

Serves 4 (can easily be doubled)


4 large or 8 small pieces of chicken wash well in running water, pat dry.

Arranged on a large greased oven proof baking dish, skin side down.

mix together well and brush over the raw chicken:
6tbsp melted butter
4tbsp prepared  mustard ( English ( hot); German(sweet-sour); Bavarian (sweet); Dijon ( clean-mild spice); America ( mild-sweet) wasabi (very spicy)
juice of 1 lemon
zest of same lemon ( zest first then juice)
1tbsp dark brown sugar
1tbsp smoked paprika or sweet

Bake for *15-20 mins skin side down
remove from oven and turn over the pieces and brush with the mustard mix
 & 3 tbsp poppy seeds ( optional)

Bake a further *20-30 mins until golden brown and juices run clear( using a knife point in thickest pieces of chicken to test for juices).

* cooking times depend on sizes of pieces of meat.

serve with green salad  &/or pasta.

Variations: great with pork,lamb and veal chops; may replace the mustard with prepared horseradish sauce.
