Garlic Honey Dijon Chicken

When it comes to comfort food, you can’t go wrong with a chicken dish. Something about chicken – in any form you choose to serve it – just soothes the soul. One of my favorite recipes is this Garlic Honey Dijon Chicken, which is super simple to make and a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

I love cooking with chicken thighs because I think the meat is way tastier, but if you have an aversion (trust me, I get it as I used to refuse to eat thighs!), bone-in chicken breasts are quite tasty, as well. I’ve even used turkey before, and it gets my motor running for sure!

Ingredients:

4 chicken thighs
Salt and pepper to season
2 TBSP olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
6 TBSP honey
1  1/3 TBSP Dijon mustard

I definitely suggest using a cast iron skillet for this, as it gives the most even cooking and really makes the flavor better. But you can use any pan you want as long as it is oven-safe. Make sure you drizzle olive oil into the skillet, heating on medium high.

Sprinkle salt and pepper generously over the chicken, ensuring an even coating. Place the thighs in the skillet and fry for 8 – 10 minutes on each side.

Make sure you’re turning them often so they do not burn.

Remove the thighs from the skillet, and set aside, making sure all the juices stay in the pan. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Into a bowl, add your honey, Dijon mustard and minced garlic, stirring to combine. Pour half the mixture into the skillet to heat. As it begins to thicken, return the chicken to it, making sure to coat the thighs in the sauce. Pour the rest of the sauce over top of the chicken.

Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 20 minutes, checking to ensure thighs are fully cooked before removing. Allow them to rest for 3 – 5 minutes before serving.
