Forget Wing Wednesday... I'm going for Thigh Thursday!

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.

Whipped this together last minute for dinner tonight. No marmalade or white wine vinegar, so used honey and red wine vinegar (a bit less) instead.

SO easy and yummy!
