  • 8 chicken thighs can also use chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice approx.1 lemon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  2. Heat a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the chicken thighs, dijon mustard, lemon juice, kosher salt, pepper, and dried thyme and mix to evenly coat the chicken.
