Curried Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

Here is a ridiculously delicious way to bake boneless skinless chicken thighs.

curry 1

I start with 6 organic boneless skinless chicken thighs. I know…these are EXPENSIVE, but the benefits of eating organic meat are worth the cost. And I will be adding lower cost pantry staples to them, and pairing with some simple sides…
So it all evens out in the end, and you will end up with a meal that costs roughly $15 total to feed 4 people

curry 2

I start out with 1/4 cup of melted organic butter.

curry 3

Add 1/2 cup of raw honey, which will melt beautifully into the butter.

curry 4

Next, add 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons of curry powder, 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a few pinches of sea salt.
I have added crushed garlic, and even onions to this sauce, and gotten some awesome results. You can play around with whatever flavors you enjoy.

curry 5

Place your chicken thighs in a shallow baking dish, and pour the honey mustard mixture over them.

curry 6

I like to toss the thighs around in the sauce a bit to make sure they are good and coated…

curry 7

using my fork to poke holes and allow the sauce to seep into the meat.

curry 8

Place in a 375 degree oven.

curry 9

After about 15 minutes, I take them out and flip them.

curry 10

Bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until done.

curry 11

We LOVE this served over brown rice! Spoon a little (or a lot of) sauce over the top…

curry 12

Tasty, tasty!
