Deviled Chicken Thighs

READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat broiler to its maximum; set the rack about 4 inches from the heat.
  • Season chicken on both sides and place it in a pan, skin side up.
  • Broil, watching carefully, until the skin is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the mustard, shallot, and cayenne (if you have a small food processor, just throw them in there and pulse the machine on and off a few times).
  • When the chicken has browned, remove it from the oven and turn it.
  • Spread just a teaspoon or so of the mustard mixture on the underside of the chicken and broil for about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and spread the remaining mixture on the skin side.
  • Broil until the mustard begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • At this point, the chicken may be done, an instant read thermometer inserted into the meat will read 160°.
  • If it is not, turn off the broiler and let the chicken remain in the oven for another 5 minutes or so.
  • Garnish with the parsley if you like and serve.
