This couldn’t be easier, faster or more delicious. Juicy mustardy flavored dark meat chicken with a crisp skin. Of course you could also do this with breasts as well if that is what you have. The secret is a simple paste you put both under the skin and over it. You can either cook this in the oven or on the BBQ.
In a small bowl combine:
- 6 green onions – finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 large clove garlic – pressed
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 6 large chicken thighs – bone in/skin on and trimmed of excess fat
- olive oil for oiling the BBQ grate if cooking that way
I am going to take a bunch of these over to Angie’s place to celebrate Fiesta Friday #327. Check out the posts from bloggers around the globe. You will find great recipes, craft ideas, and other tips. Please vote for your favorite 5.
The chicken looks yummy.
Chicken thighs always produce juicer results, looks so tasty 🙂
They do! I much prefer them to breasts. And I have read they are healthier as well.
Juicy chicken thighs with flavorful dijon mustard, it couldn’t be tastier.
Interesting! I’ve seen honey-mustard but not straight-up mustard! I’m assuming the mustard mellows out somehow during the cooking process???? I’ll definitely give them a try as I’m always looking for new quick & easy chicken thigh recipes. I usually just slap on some marmalade and call it done. LOL Gets boring after awhile.
Also, how adorable and beautiful is your dog????? I will give him an entire chicken thigh as I can’t resist the face.
They aren’t sweet but it was not an especially hot Dijon mustard, more mellow savory. I admit to loving a good ginger or orange marmalade on thighs as well, even mixed with some mustard.
I made this recipe for dinner tonight (oven method) and they were soooo good! Wow! I only made two thighs because I wasn’t sure but now I am wanting more, more more.
Thank you, you have warmed my heart. I am glad it was a success.
