Chicken Thighs or Chicken Breasts?

If you would like to use a leaner protein in this recipe you can use chicken breasts. I recommend chicken thighs in this recipe because the darker meat is so moist,  flavorful, and works really well with the honey mustard glaze.

Tips for Making Honey Glazed Chicken Thighs

  • If you have a chicken/poultry brine – use it! Marinate your chicken with water and brine for several hours for extra moist, tender chicken and tons more flavor. I use THIS brine. This step is not required but is delicious if you can let the chicken thighs marinate.
  • No grill? No problem! Lay chicken in cast iron skillet, pour all of glaze over chicken and into pan. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes at 425F.
  • Serve this recipe with quinoa or brown rice.
