Amazing chicken dish. These Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken thighs are so easy to prepare and ready in about 30 minutes.
It’s been all about easy dinners for me lately. With the hustle of the holidays and insane amount of cooking on November and December, I’ve been wanting to spend less time in my kitchen. I’m sure you feel the same way. Every time I walk by my kitchen, I think, “I need a break from you!” So if I can quickly make dinner and get out, that is exactly what I will do.
You know, everything I quickly made and got out has been delizioso! (I know this isn’t an Italian dish, I just felt like pretending I was for a minute.) This chicken is no exception! It is so good with some roasted potatoes on a side.
I ordered myself a salad last week, to take home with me, and they put the wrong dressing in there. (Don’t you hate that?!) I’m a Ranch girl all the way and occasionally, I’ll take Balsamic Vinaigrette. They decided that I needed some honey mustard. I wasn’t too happy about it and I just didn’t want it on my salad. I did taste it thought, it was tasty and a bit spicy. That’s when it hit me, I should make those chicken thighs, that I was defrosting for the next day, in a spicy honey mustard sauce! Yum! (No, I didn’t use the dressing in the chicken, I ate it with some pretzels! Ever tried it? So good.)
