Honey Mustard Chicken - HealthyforTwo

This chicken dish was mostly an experiment and I must say, it turned out pretty darn good! I served this when we had an unplanned dinner guest and it was a hit – he even had seconds! This is beyond easy to make and kicks your regular boring pan-grilled chicken to the curb.

You need a heavy-bottomed metal sauce pan to make this dish – one without any plastic on it. You will use it on the stovetop then transfer it to the oven.

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 chicken thighs (boneless or bone-in)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh rosemary

To Do:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the mustard, honey and olive oil in a medium bowl.
  • Heat a bit of oil in a heavy-bottomed metal pan on high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on all sides. Once the pan is hot, sear the chicken for about a minute on each side until slightly browned.
  • Turn the heat off then spoon the honey mustard sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle the fresh rosemary all over.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 30 – 45 minutes or until the center reaches 165 degrees. Your time will vary depending if you use bone-in or boneless chicken thighs. I used boneless so it took about 30 minutes.
  • Serve the chicken by spooning extra sauce from the pan on top. Enjoy!
