How can you go wrong with these ingredients!! I did up the garlic to 3. Placed all the ingredients in a zip lock bag with chicken thighs, layed it flat on a cookie sheet and froze. For a quick thaw, place the bag in a sink of tempid water for approximately 30 minutes, more if your chicken thighs are large, turning the bag occasionally. I got this tip from our good friend who is a butcher. Now, I always have chicken thighs in my freezer for a quick, easy supper. Next tine, I might experiment with the mustards for a different taste. Great contribution!

Pretty good, and simple, marinade. It just lacked a bit of punch that I was expecting. However, I suppose, as with everything, that which level of ingredients make all the difference - a better quality balsamic perhaps, and a spicier mustard may make all the difference.

This was really good! I used a mix of dijon mustard and brown mustard seed. Because these are more mild, I was able to use more. I would definately make this again!

This really turned out lovely. I typically get more complex with my marinates, but heck, it doesn't always have to be that way! Modificantions that I made: I doubled the sauce and used honey mustard, though I wanted to try dijon (we were all out); I used bone-in breasts,, and added some poutlry seasoning and a little extra garlic. I roasted them, and poured the remaining saice over the chicken on a bed of wild rice. Super hit. Thank you!

It's a good marinade but maybe it would be even better with Dijon mustard. Since it was not specified, I used prepared mustard. Thanks Across the Ocean :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

This recipe is quite tasty, and my fiance agrees. I will definitely be making this again! I used dijon mustard and added in some lemon zest (that might make it a bit too lemony for some people, but I enjoyed it) and EVOO. I also marinated for about an hour and a half. Thanks for sharing!

I am a vegetarian and this is a good recipe for a vegetarian cooking for an omnivore because it can marinate one or two servings of chicken and the preparation is simple and fast. A quick round on the Foreman Grill and dinner is ready!

Great!!! And, NO oil or mayonnaise. (Yes, I'm alert to calories in food.) By accident we included the zest of the lemon. Wouldn't change anything else.
