How many times do you come home after a crazy busy day and now you have to come up with an idea for dinner? (besides the always fantastic but often boring idea of going out or ordering in). This recipe only take 15 minutes of your time (then it’s in the oven for 20-30) but it tastes like you’ve been basting and concocting some very fancy flavorful sauce! Pair this with some rice and green beans and you have a beautiful homemade, healthy, delicious dinner! Thank you so much Shannon Ables of The Simply Luxurious Life Blog and Vlog for this fantastic recipe!
- 3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 3+1 Tbsp whole grain mustard (+1 for the rub) (+1 for the rub)
- 2 Tbsp honey Dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp chicken stock (or more to taste)
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 4 chicken thighs bone-in, skin-on
- fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Make the mustard rub in a small mixing bowl: olive oil, 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Dry the chicken thighs before covering in the rub. Leave in the bowl while you make the mustard sauce.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the three mustards, honey and chicken stock. Depending upon the consistency you want, add more or less chicken stock. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet to medium heat. Add the chicken thighs, skin side down, and merely sear both sides until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Upon flipping to the second side, cover each thigh in the three mustard sauce and add sprigs of rosemary to the pan in between the thighs.
Place into the oven (uncovered) until completely cooked through (175 degrees Fahrenheit, internal temperature of the chicken). Approximately 25-30 minutes, but check at 20 minutes.
Serve immediately and enjoy the tender, luscious flavor.
