Chicken is the most popular meat in my family; I am sure it is for most people. There is nothing not to like about chicken…it’s the most friendly ingredient that everyone just can’t get enough of. I know I can’t do without chicken. In fact, my entire protein intake is mostly chicken and seafood and I love it.
This recipe is inspired by Rock Recipes. I wanted to use up the Dijon mustard and also heads of garlic that were sprouting in my pantry. Sometimes when you are hungry or just want a super quick meal, skillet cooking is the best way to have healthy homemade meals in a jiffy.
I am usually not a big fan of mustard as it might be overpowering. In this honey dijon garlic chicken recipe, I made sure that I used a moderate amount. The key is to have the perfect balance of sweetness (from the honey) and the slight heat and nuance from the mustard. Lots of garlic is always a plus for most dishes and there is no exception in this garlicky, aromatic, moist, and absolutely delicious chicken dish.
For the chicken, you can use chicken breasts or thighs. I had a ton of Costco chicken thighs in my fridge so I opted for thighs. Similar to the creamy garlic chicken, Vietnamese caramel chicken, chili lime chicken and Chipotle lime chicken, I deboned the chicken thighs so my 4-year old could easily eat them. Trust me, it’s the best way to eat chicken thighs, deboned and skin-on. This recipe is an absolute must-try, enjoy!
