Wow! I loved this. I found this recipe on Epicurious and, sure enough, it was also posted on 'Zaar. I used 8 thighs but didn't quite double the sauce ingredients (I used about 1 cup of orange juice and the rest of the ingredients in appropriate amounts. There was lots of sauce for the rice that I served it with.) I used a combination of whole grained mustard and regular Dijon, since I didn't have the creole mustard. I used Tabasco sauce, but not even a whole teaspoon. This had a great flavour, very savoury, just a little sweet. The orange juice didn't predominate like I thought it might. But the mustard was also just a nice flavour, definitely there, but a team player rather than a "prima donna". This was so simple, but had a real "star" quality flavour. I will definitely make this again!
A great recipe, made as written, usually with French grainy mustard and fresh OJ when possible. (Tamaretta, you'll probably never see this, but please don't review a recipe if you haven't tried it as written) We always love it, as do our guests. We adjust the sweetness, heat, and mustard flavors of the sauce just before returning the chicken to the pan, and it's always delicious.
