We love anything honey-mustard. This is great way to prepare chicken thighs. Needs to marinate for 2 hours.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken thighs in a shallow dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the salt, black pepper, cayenne, and dried thyme; sprinkle evenly over the chicken thighs.
  3. In another bowl, add 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup mustard, and garlic; stir to combine; pour mixture over the chicken.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Take chicken out of marinade and discard marinade.
  6. Dredge chicken in pecans then place chicken on a lightly greased rack in a foil lined broiler pan.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until chicken is done.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the remaining honey, the remaining mustard, and the curry.
  9. Serve the sauce with the chicken.

We all (including the kids!) loved this recipe. I did modify my seasoning to just salt, pepper and garlic powder because we're not huge fans of curry. I will make this again for sure!

I thought we would really like this, but it just didn't do it for us. There were too many competing flavors. It was okay, but I wouldn't make it again.

We love pecans, so this recipe fits well into my collection. The honey mustard and curry add just that flavorful touch such that I would serve this at a small dinner party with no apologies for serving chicken thighs.
