Honey Mustard Chicken

honey mustard chicken thighs

Finding new quick weeknight dinner ideas is sometimes a challenge.  I hate making the same things over and over and try to make at least 2 brand new recipes a week.  They are not always winners, but it’s always great when you find a new one that the whole family agrees deserves to be added to the rotation.  This was one of those recipes!  Everyone loved it and Brian was especially crazy about the sauce!

I had some boneless chicken thighs to make for dinner last night and I was just looking around on Pinterest for ideas.  If you don’t normally use Pinterest, it’s a great tool.  On-line bulletin board that you can save things you like.  I have a board called “Recipes to try” and when I see something that looks good, I’ll add it.  I found this Honey mustard chicken recipe there, at Damn Delicious.  I will definitely be checking this blog out more, I already saw a few things that look great.

The original recipe has you use chicken thighs with the skin and bones but I had boneless on hand and that worked fine.  If you prefer chicken breasts, you could do that too, just make sure you don’t over cook them or they will be dry.
