Mustard Chicken Thighs

Everyone has their favorite go-to recipes when it comes to getting back on track and eating whatever your regimen calls for. One of my very favorites (I seriously eat it 2-4 days a week) is mustard chicken! As I say to all my guests when I make it… I know it sounds funny putting yellow mustard on your chicken but seriously when it cooks it has the best flavor! My current preference is pasture raised chicken thighs, I can’t get enough of them! But this recipe tastes amazing on a whole chicken, chicken breasts and ground chicken or ground turkey. It keeps the ground meats more moisturized for a couple days following your prep! You can keep it simple and just marinate your poultry in plain yellow mustard or you can follow the recipe below!

Here’s what you need: (For approx. 8 chicken thighs)

• 1/3 cup of mustard
• 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika (I love it smokey)
• 4 sprigs of thyme (optional)
• touch of garlic powder (I am not a garlic person but a couple of my friends love it with the garlic powder)

I always start by adding the mustard to a little sauce bowl then I add the smoked paprika- I mix the two together and then add it to a mixing bowl with the chicken. I use a spoon to spread the mustard all over the chicken then lastly I add in the thyme. You can let this marinate for 5 minutes or as long as you would like. If you love salt like I do, I would discourage you adding any to the marinade as it tends to dry out the poultry. I switch it up with the cooking method. Sometimes I throw it on the grill and I cook it at a medium temperature about 5-6 minutes a side. Lately I have been sautéing mine; with the La Creuset square grill pan it fits 8 perfectly I just spray the pan with some avocado oil and cook for about 5-7 minutes each side or until thoroughly cooked!

I would love to know what you think!

    Great timing, I’m making chicken thighs on Monday. One question, do you bbq it, grill it or bake in the oven.
    Thanks for the recipe.

      I love it BBQ’d or made stove top on the skillet. Let me know how you end up making it!
