this recipe on Pinterest not long ago and thought it looked fairly easy and very good. I actually bought the chicken a few weeks ago to make it then our menu got mixed up so I stuck them in the freezer.
I pulled them out and let them defrost in the fridge (then in the microwave for a little while).
I didn't get to "marinate" as long as I should have (which is what happens when you forget to read over a new recipe the night before), but it worked.
And it was simple.
My picky eater walked through and actually jumped for joy seeing the chicken. "That is REAL chicken, Mama!" I guess the fact that there was even skin made it more real?
8 chicken thighs (bones/skin included)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 lemon juiced (or about 1/4 a cup of lemon juice)
Salt and pepper
1-2 tbsp grainy mustard (I used "spicy mustard")
2-4 tbsp honey
Pour the olive oil and lemon juice over the chicken. (I used a ziplock) Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast in the oven at 375 for about 25 minutes (or a little longer if you didn't defrost in time :) with the skin down.
After 25 minutes, flip chicken over and return to oven for about 10 more minutes.
Meanwhile, mix together the mustard/honey. I used about 2 Tbsp mustard and 4 Tbsp honey.
Remove from oven and brush the mustard/honey on top of the chicken.
Broil for about 5 more minutes.
We ate ours with potatoes with white sauce, carrots/Ranch, and a Rhodes bread loaf.
It was enjoyed by all.
I will be making this again. (And next time, I will "marinate" it a little longer...)
