Looking for another tasty chicken recipe?  Have I got one for you?  We are a huge fan of bone-in chicken thighs anyway you cook them.  But these creamy mustard chicken thighs are my favorite.  

The chicken thighs are patted dry, seasoned and brush with a portion of the grainy mustard on the chicken before cooking.  

I like to cook them in my favorite skillet with a lid,  cast iron skillet.  

Heat a little avocado oil in the skillet until it is very hot but not smoking.  Add the seasoned chicken and brown on each side.  

Once the chicken is brown nicely, remove the chicken to a platter, add the broth and some more grainy mustard and two tablespoons of heavy cream to the skillet.  Stir the sauce and bring up to temperature and add the chicken spooning the sauce over the chicken.

Put the lid on and let the magic happen, stirring occasionally.

A whole grain mustard sometimes referred to as grainy mustard is a regular mustard with ground mustard seeds.  It has a coarse texture with intense mustard flavor.  

While the yellow mustard is usually very mild and has a more pronounced vinegar flavor, whole grain mustard is stronger, and the mustard seeds play a predominate roll in its flavor.

Just before serving spoon the rich mustard sauce over the chicken and garnish with sliced green onions.

What you need for the recipe:
  • 8 Bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup  grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • Large heavy bottom skillet
  • Large slotted spoon
