Directions 8 steps | 115 Minutes

Step 1

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the whole-grain mustard, Dijon, garlic, honey, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and black pepper.

Step 2

Slowly whisk in the olive oil, creating an emulsion. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired. (See notes.)

Step 3

Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade.

Step 4

Add the chicken thighs. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place them in a shallow casserole dish. Discard the remaining marinade. Spoon the reserved honey mustard sauce over the chicken.

Step 6

Place the rosemary sprigs in between the chicken thighs.

Step 7

Bake the chicken thighs from 40-50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature of the chicken is at least 165°F. Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Step 8

Serve the honey mustard chicken thighs with a side of rice and steamed vegetables. Enjoy!


Notes:

The flavors of the mustards vary by brand so adjust the seasonings as you desire. If too salty, add more honey. If too sweet, add more mustard and salt.
