Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons brown deli mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2 pounds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Whisk honey, mustard, thyme and salt in a medium bowl. Add chicken thighs and turn to coat. Arrange chicken on the parchment-lined baking sheet, tucking them into neat thigh shapes.
  3. Roast chicken until cooked through and browned in spots, 30 to 40 minutes *See note. Let rest 4 to 6 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • I use a digital instant read thermometer to check that they’ve reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F.

To Make Ahead

  • You can mix the chicken with the honey mustard mixture up to 1 day ahead and then bake them.
  • Or they reheat really well. You can do so in the microwave, until they are steaming hot. Or you can set them in a pyrex baking dish and cover them with foil. Then just bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until they are steaming hot.
