Chicken thighs are probably my favourite piece of chicken to cook with, if I'm not cooking a whole chicken. Bone in, skin optional. Chicken thighs, in my opinion, do not fall into that boring, bland, "I don't know what else to cook, so I'll cook chicken" category.
I used Donal Skehan's sticky mustard drumsticks as the base for dinner tonight.
As I write this, the house is filling with a sweet and spicy aroma of marmalade and mustard... my mouth is watering. My mom made a lovely marmalade for each of us for Christmas this year, so I used that in this recipe. (Maybe she'll let me add that recipe to these pages...)
Thoughts for next time:
- I think I would marinate the chicken in advance. The chicken was good but I definitely think that some extra chill time with the mustard and marmalade couldn't hurt.
- I may try a batch with the skin on... though I don't think that anything was lacking in its lack.
I can't wait to try these tomorrow... cold with a salad.
