1/3 Photos of Barbecued Oven-Baked Chicken Thighs
This is easy and really good! This makes a great meal served with fries and coleslaw! If you are in a rush you can omit browning the chicken and increase the cooking time slightly, I find that the sauce will be thinner from the chicken juices if you do not brown the chicken first, browning also adds to the flavor of this dish --- if possible use only French's mustard for this, for some reason other brands of prepared mustard are just not as good. Adjust all ingredients to taste if you prefer a sweeter sauce add in more brown sugar.
