Annie's Scrumptious Chicken Thighs


Here is a recipe I came up with after seeing several different recipes like it and then adapting them to make one all my own. These chicken thighs are perfect served cold to take along on a picnic. Or they can be eaten warm right out of the oven. To make them a little healthier than the other recipes I removed all the skin and excess fat from the thighs. One recipe calls for butter and oil to be put into the mustard mixture but I left out the butter and only added about 2 tsp of canola oil.

Annie's Scrumptious Chicken Thighs

12 chicken thighs (skin removed and all excess fat)
1/2 cup French's mustard
4 garlic cloves finely minced
1 tbls dried rosemary
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt (the mustard has enough salt in it already)
1-2tsp of canola oil
About 1 1/2 cups of dried bread crumbs
Fresh lemon juice from about 1/2 a lemon

1.) Preheat your oven's broiler. Place the chicken thighs in a baking dish and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice. Put under the broiler for 5 minutes, remove, turn over and place under broiler for another 3 minutes.
2.) Mix together the mustard, garlic, rosemary, pepper, salt and oil in small bowl. Brush (or use your fingers) the mustard mixture all over each piece of chicken then roll in the bread crumbs until evenly coated.
3.) Place back in the baking dish and back under the broiler for another 5 minutes until the top of the thighs are slightly browned. Then turn down your oven to 400 degrees and cook another 10 - 15 minutes until the juices of the chicken run clear.
4.) Eat that night for dinner or put in the fridge and take them on a picnic on a beautiful sunny day! :)
