A Better Than Average Dinner in Chaos
Typical dinner night at my house:
Me: “Kids, dinner.”
Random kid: “What’s for dinner?”
Me:"Food" (and no, that comeback never gets tiresome)
Random Kid: "You always say that. What kind of food?"
Me: "Chicken kind"
Random Kid: "Chicken, I hate chicken! Why do you always make chicken. I hate chicken. [Insert whining, complaining here]"
Me: "Honey-mustard chicken"
All kids: "YEY! Everyone run to the table, its honey-mustard chicken. I love you mummy!!"
See how simple it can be?
Honey Mustard Chicken
I'm almost embarrassed to post this as my inaugural recipe because its so easy. Tonight I used turkey thighs, because they were there and they were inexpensive. Usually I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. You could absolutely use chicken breasts, its just that I don't like them too much. They are less juicy than thighs, but some people like that, just not me. Whatever you use, skinless is best because the meat becomes more flavourful.
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dijon mustard (you could throw in some grainy mustard too)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 cloves chopped garlic
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 packs skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Preheat oven to 375. Line a metal roasting pan with tin foil.
Mix ingredients together and pour over chicken. Let sit for as long as you have, 10 minutes or put it in the fridge all day. For boneless thighs or breast roast in oven for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 180F. Slice, pour over oven juices and serve. In our house its usually with rice and green beans.
(see that's all the ingredients, how easy is that?)
