I love using chicken thighs (either boneless, skinless or bone in, skin on!!) for this – they are so full of flavour – and don’t take very long to cook!
12-14 small chicken thighs (bone in tastes great, but boneless if you prefer)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
3 tbsp melted butter
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp each: dijon mustard and grainy mustard
1 tbsp yellow deli mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Place chicken in baking dish, and combine the rest of the ingredients in small bowl. Stir well and drizzle over chicken – rubbing and turning the chicken to coat well. Finish with bone (or under side) up. Roast for 20 minutes, turn chicken and roast for a further 20 minutes, basting with the honey mustard mixture again for the last 10 minutes. Depending on the size of the chicken thighs, they might take longer to cook. It is important for them to cook long enough to get this delicious bit of carmelization on the chicken – yum yum yum.
If you have used skinless, the chicken will still get a nice roasted, browned finish to it, but if you have kept the skin on, it will be irresistible!!
