Oven Baked Chicken Thighs

Ingredient Notes


• Chicken – I’m using 2 lb of chicken thighs today – bones in, skin on.

• Salt and pepper – For seasoning and to taste.

• Olive oil – I like to use a nice neutral tasting oil when cooking with chicken.

• Mustard – Today I am using both a regular mustard as well as a dijon grainy mustard. You can use any brand you like!

• Honey – The sweet element.

• Garlic – 6 fresh cloves, minced. Always remember the golden rule; 1 1/2 teaspoons is equal to 1 fresh clove.

• Red pepper flakes – For some added heat.

• Preheat oven: To 425 F degrees.

Prepare chicken: In a bowl or on a cutting board generously season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper; place into a 9×13 baking dish.

Prepare sauce: In another bowl, whisk together the olive oil, both mustards, honey, garlic, and red pepper flakes until well incorporated. Brush sauce (be generous!) over both sides of the chicken thighs.


Bake: Bake for 35 minutes or until the chicken highs have an internal temperature of 165 F degrees and skin is crispy.

• Serve: Remove from the oven, and serve warm!
