Simple to make and tastes wonderful!

You can also substitute chicken breasts instead of thighs, you'll need to adjust the calories too.

  • This was a well balanced recipe. There were many layers of flavor in this recipe. It was delicious. My husband and picky eater daughter loved it and put it in the keeper pile. I agree. I did leave out the pepper flakes (personal preference). Do pat the chicken dry. It will brown better. - 9/6/12

  • We loved it. It had a great taste with the mustard and orange sauce. Followed the recipe but found it took more line (20 min.) to fully cook the chicken thighs. - 3/23/10
