Simple Dijon Chicken/Salmon Recipe

Coming from David Ludwig’s book, “Always Delicious”, this is a delicious recipe containing high-quality, complete protein that pairs well with a wide range of vegetables. This recipe also allows flexibility with the types of herbs to be added. Rosemary or Tarragon are both examples of great herb choices, as they are both known to improve digestion and provide natural antibacterial effects. This is a delicious and easy-to-prepare recipe!

Prep Time: Ready In 20 minutes (50 minutes for chicken)

Serves: Serves 4


  1. 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil for chicken, 1 tablespoon for salmon
  2. ½ teaspoon sea salt
  3. ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  4. 2 teaspoons Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  5. ½ to 1 teaspoon dried thyme, rosemary, tarragon, or other herbs of your choice
  6. 2 pounds bone-in, skin-on, free-range chicken thighs or 1 ½ pounds skin-on, wild-caught salmon fillets


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the olive oil, salt, pepper, mustard, and herbs in a small bowl.
  3. Rub the mustard mixture over the chicken and under the chicken skin or on both sides of the salmon until completely covered. Cook immediately, or for a more flavorful dish, cover and set aside in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour; salmon should marinate for no longer than 3 hours.
  4. Place the chicken or salmon skin-side up in a 9-inch square baking dish or medium baking sheet. Bake the chicken for 45 minutes or the salmon for 15 minutes, or until cooked through. For chicken, if there are juices in the pan, use them to occasionally baste while cooking by spooning the juice in the baking dish over the chicken.
  5. If desired, broil for 1 to 2 minutes at the end of the cooking time for crispier skin.

    Thanks for the diverse tips contributed on this blog. I have noticed that many insurance providers offer shoppers generous reductions if they favor to insure a few cars with them. A significant variety of households own several autos these days, in particular those with more aged teenage kids still located at home, as well as the savings with policies may soon increase. So it will pay to look for a great deal.
