Mustard Chicken Thighs

The awesome thing about sharing your love for health and wellness is the amount of people who come out in droves to share their favorites with you! I just love when people tell me about a new awesome, tasty AND simple recipe!!! Sandra always has amazing keto friendly recipes that are easy to make and she loves to share them and I love her for it so it is a win-win all the way around! I imagine there are probably 1000’s of people who look into their fridge and think, “well I’ve got some chicken but I’m out of everything else”. But who doesn’t have mustard in their fridge?! And if your mom is anything like mine seasonings in the pantry were a must so just add a few of your favorites and there is one of the easiest (and probably the cheapest) healthy dinners you can make!

Chicken breast can get so boring just eating it plain so we like to switch things up in our house and enjoy chicken thighs at least once or twice per week! Here are just a few of my favorite flavor variations:

  • Grilled on the grill outside
  • Wrap 1 piece of bacon around a chicken thigh and throw on the grill! (husband’s favorite)
  • Grilled in a skillet with olive oil or coconut oil
  • Italian seasonings
  • Indian seasonings
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Topped with marinara or pesto
  • Poultry seasonings and spices
  • Mustard chicken 
  • Baked chicken (use foil for easy clean up)
  • Baked then shredded chicken with BBQ sauce (recipe coming soon)
  • Crockpot chicken fajitas
  • Crockpot chicken soup

These are just a few of the 100’s of ways to make chicken but I won’t keep you from why you came to the blog today… its time for that OVERLY EASY mustard chicken recipe!!
