Three Mustard Chicken

Simply Luxurious
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3+1 Tbsp whole grain mustard (+1 for the rub) (+1 for the rub)
  • 2 Tbsp honey Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp chicken stock (or more to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 chicken thighs bone-in, skin-on
  • fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Make the mustard rub in a small mixing bowl: olive oil, 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Dry the chicken thighs before covering in the rub. Leave in the bowl while you make the mustard sauce.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the three mustards, honey and chicken stock. Depending upon the consistency you want, add more or less chicken stock. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet to medium heat. Add the chicken thighs, skin side down, and merely sear both sides until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Upon flipping to the second side, cover each thigh in the three mustard sauce and add sprigs of rosemary to the pan in between the thighs.
  • Place into the oven (uncovered) until completely cooked through (175 degrees Fahrenheit, internal temperature of the chicken). Approximately 25-30 minutes, but check at 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy the tender, luscious flavor.
