Chicken! The holy grail of meats in my house! Seriously-my husband loves chicken, so I cook a lot of it! Therefore, I’m always trying to find new ways to spruce up chicken, because preparing it the same way all of the time can be a bit boring. While searching one of my favorites sites Pinterest, I found this AMAZING Honey Mustard Chicken recipe. Of course with Pinterest, there were many versions of this dish, but my absolute favorite came from I Am A Food Blog.
This honey mustard chicken recipe is absolutely wonderful! It’s seriously one of my favorites, and I have to make sure I cook at least 6-8 thighs or my family will be looking at me like where is the rest. I made this dish last night, and my husband had at least three pieces and my youngest son had two! If your family is a fan of chicken thighs, give this recipe a try!
Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs: inspired by I Am A Food Blog
1/4 Cup Honey
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper
6-8 Bone in, skin on chicken thighs
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a small bowl, stir together the honey, whole grain mustard, Dijon, and garlic. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Pat the thighs dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat up a large cast iron pan or non-stick skillet on medium high heat and add 4 of the thighs skin side down. Brown for 5 minutes undisturbed until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan and place in a large oven-proof casserole dish. Brown the remaining 4 thighs and place in the oven-proof dish. Pour on the honey mustard mixture. Bake until the thighs are cooked through, 30-40 minutes based on size. Serve warm.
