Our Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs Skillet Dish transports you to France.
You feel like you are somewhere in the French countryside.
Plus, it is succulent and relaxing to enjoy with family and friends. In fact, if you are having friends over for dinner and drinks, this is one of the easiest preparations since all 3 courses are in one pan.
Fortunately, both of us have spent time in France enjoying the cuisine.
French But Simple
What we also love about this dish is that it is simple and fun, as you will see below.
Here are the reasons you need to try this.
We cook it in a steel skillet on the stove and in the oven. That sears the chicken and locks in the juices, creating a crispy and flavorful exterior.
First, Cooking the chicken thighs in the skillet in the oven insures the dish cooks evenly
Second, The Honey mustard glaze caramelizes, so you get a sweet, tangy coating
Third, Prep time is about 15 minutes and you should have the dish on the table in about 35-to-40 minutes.
Fourth, It presents beautifully with the fresh potatoes and beans.
Like A Cassoulet
Fifth, The Honey Mustard Chicken also mimics a French cassoulet. Granted, it doesn’t have the wide range of ingredients like duck confit, pork sausage, and white beans.
But it is comfort food like the Cassoulet that is perfect for a cold winter evening. But we have this all year long.
And like the Cassoulet, the Honey Mustard Chicken is versatile. You can make it with different meats, beans, and seasonings, allowing for endless variations and experimentation.
We know you will enjoy this and use it all the time.
We also give you some wine pairing recommendations. Our top pick is a Sauvignon Blanc either from France, but the more herby New Zealand labels will not drown out the dish. Don’t be afraid to try a red wine. The dark meat thighs can stand up to reds, but we think the lighter Pinot Noir might be the best.
Watch and enjoy. Tell us what you think.
