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 honey mustard chicken breasts recipe, a creamy honey mustard chicken recipe, and an Asian-style honey chicken recipe you may like.

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.

    Delish! Made using slices of chicken breast instead, with sides of roasted veggies and avocado coleslaw. Everyone at home enjoyed this recipe.

  2. I’m drooling all over that crispy skin! Chicken thighs are the best, aren’t they? And the sauce looks seriously amazing. #mustmake!

      Made this tonight using boneless, skinless thighs and the flour dredge. Excellent! Served over brown rice with spinach salad and a glass of white burgundy. Husband licked the plate. šŸ˜‹ pics on my Insta @burienwino

  3. I love using chicken much flavour and this honey Dijon sauce is begging for a slice of bread to be dunked into it!! Yum!

  4. This looks delicious Natasha! I think I’d be with you and just spoon that sauce right into my mouth!

    1. Thanks, Helen! šŸ™‚ Sorry, I don’t do calorie counts for any of my recipes. There’s too much variation depending on the exact ingredients used and even things like the size of each chicken thigh. For a ballpark figure, you could try plugging the ingredients into an online calculator. I’m not sure how accurate they are.
