Tender and moist. Cooks on top of the stove, so it doesn't heat up the kitchen much. Good for any time of the year.

Buy a family pack of chicken thighs. Slice a 1/2 inch filet from each side of thigh, leaving the bone-in piece. This yields three finger-dipping size of meaty pieces.

So easy. Place the chicken in a single layer in to a baking dish. Stir the stock and mustard in a small bowl.

You can use chicken breast halves instead of thighs but I just happen to prefer dark meat. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.


Pound each chicken thigh to about 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper to taste.

This is a very inexpensive recipe since it calls for making your own BBQ sauce and uses chicken thighs. It's also tasty.

I prefer recipes that are quick and easy to prepare but this one, I will have to say, is not simple, but it is so good! When I make it, I make a lot and freeze the leftovers.


They are great to reheat later for an easy meal or lunch at work. They can be quickly reheated in the microwave or served crispy by heating them in the oven.

I had some leftover chicken broth and red wine, which I had froze. I decided to use it tonight with excellent results. I used boneless chicken thighs, but any chicken pieces will do.

Using a slow cooker can make your chicken thighs very tender. This inexpensive, garlic lime chicken recipe may take longer in the crockpot, but well worth the wait.
