This is a favorite recipe in my family. It is modified from an old recipe from Southern Living magazine. I like to serve these mustard thighs with chicken-flavored rice. Even my picky kids love this. You can adjust the heat by adding more hot sauce (I like to do 3 tablespoons often) or less, depending on tastes.

This is pretty amazing. It’s a frightening amount of Dijon, but it makes a very savory dish. The marinade is thick like peanut butter, and it makes a nice crust as it bakes. Give it a good sprinkle of salt and pepper before it goes in the oven. Read More

Great recipe! It smelled every bit as good cooking as it tasted. I halved the recipe as I was only cooking three chicken thighs. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. At first the amount of Dijon was intimidating, but it was delicious. I will definitely make it again! Read More
