My crispy honey Dijon chicken is a grown-up twist on honey mustard, and it's absolutely delicious. Dijon mustard, white wine, and butter make it taste extra luxe.
There's something about honey mustard that I will always love no matter how old I get. That sweet-savory combination is one of my favorites. I decided to kick it up a notch in this recipe. I also have a creamy honey mustard chicken recipe you may like and an Asian-style honey chicken.
This blog is no stranger to crispy chicken thigh recipes (see the list at the bottom of this post if you're interested).
I love that crispy chicken skin, the tender meat, and the way you don't have to do much active cooking. Sear it up then pop it in the oven and let it cook in the delicious sauce. Total comfort food.
You can serve it over mashed potatoes, or just spoon the sauce out of the pan into your mouth like I did. The sauce is seriously addictive.
