Crispy Chicken Thighs with Pineapple Honey Mustard Sauce (A Review)

These Crispy Chicken Thighs with Pineapple Honey Mustard Sauce by PaleoOMG are AMAZING.  They turned out above and beyond my expectations!  Such simple ingredients came together in a surprising combination of flavors.


I wasn’t able to find pastured chicken thighs with the skin on, so I opted for skinless.  Bummer!  I love the crispy skin.

It took longer than expected to caramelize the pineapple.  Next time, I’ll start the pineapple when I start the chicken, instead of starting it when the chicken goes into the oven, as the recipe is written.

When I tasted the sauce by itself, I wasn’t terribly impressed.  But on the chicken?  Oh my!  The salty-sweet flavor with the garlicky, oniony, peppery-ness!

This recipe is going on my menu again for lunches next week.  The leftovers make lunch pretty exciting!

And because I can’t leave a recipe alone, I think I’ll experiment with deglazing the cast iron with a little chicken stock.  The bits of chicken stuck to the bottom of the pan were delicioso.  I bet that flavor added to the sauce would be meat heaven!
