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.

  4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Take chicken out of marinade and discard marinade.

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.
