This Baked Mustard Chicken with Clementines recipe is inspired by the chef Ottolenghi, from one of my favorite recipes out of the famous 'Jerusalem:  A Cookbook' (Roasted Chicken with Clementines & Arak).
The original Ottolenghi chicken recipe is prepared with a lot of anis flavors with Arak, roasted fennel, and fennel seeds. I know that anis may not be everybody's favorite flavor, so I made a number of modifications to the original recipe and the result is outstanding!
Print Recipe


  • 4 Chicken Thighs
  • 6 Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 Vidallia Onion Cut into quarters
  • 2 Fennel Bulbs Cut into Quarters
  • 4 Clementines sliced
  • 4 strings Fresh Thyme

For the Sauce

  • 1/2 cup White Wine dry
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • 1 Clementine juiced
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice fresh, squeezed
  • 2 tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 475 F.
  • In a bowl mix all the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • On a sheet pan, place the chicken, cut up onions and fennel. Top it with clementines.
  • Pour the sauce all over the chicken, veggies, and clementines. Sprinkle fresh thyme and transfer the sheet pan to the oven.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are caramelized. 
  • Serve with rice or bread.


  • Use sheet pan big enough to accommodate all the ingredients. You do not want to overcrowd it. It could cause the chicken to steam as opposed to roast/bake. 
  • If after taking the dish out of the oven your sauce is too loose, remove chicken, veggies, and clementines onto a plate and cover with foil. Add the sauce into a saucepan and cook for a couple of minutes until it is reduced by half.
