Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Thighs
A few simple pantry ingredients combine to make a sweet-hot mustard marinade that really perks up roasted bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. Marinate chicken at least 4 hours, but overnight is even better.
Make 2 slashes crosswise into the skin and meat of each chicken thigh with a sharp knife cutting to the bone.
Cuts should be about 1 inch apart.
Transfer thighs into a heavy resealable plastic bag.
Whisk Dijon mustard brown sugar red wine vinegar mustard powder salt black pepper ground chipotle pepper and cayenne pepper in a bowl until smooth.
Whisk garlic into marinade.
Pour marinade into bag over chicken thighs and massage marinade into chicken coating each thigh thoroughly and working the marinade into the cuts.
Seal bag and refrigerate at least 4 hours (or overnight for best flavor).
