As a young man I could take, or leave, chicken of just about any kind: grilled, barbecued, or baked.
On a 45-day guided tour of Europe in 1970, I had fried chicken 23 times. It was years before I could eat it again, and enjoy it.
However, as I accumulate more and more years, I am finding I like chicken better and better - fixed just about any way.
This is a super easy recipe from "Simply Recipes" by Elise Bauer, which we found today, and put it together this evening for a very flavorful dinner.
4 chicken thighs
1/4 C spicy mustard
1/4 C honey
1tbl olive oil
3 or 4 springs fresh rosemary
freshly ground pepper
Set the oven for 350 degrees.
Mix the mustard, honey, olive oil and salt in a small mixing bowl. Further add ingredients to taste. I added a bit more mustard and salt.
Place the thighs in a roasting pan and pour the mixture over the top. Add the rosemary springs between the pieces and bake for 45 mins to an hour. We removed ours at 45 mins, but it could have gone just a few more minutes for added browning and crisping of the skin. Done when the juices run clear, or at 170 degrees.
