  1. Preheat the oven to 450º F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, honey, and orange juice.

  3. Place the chicken thighs in a medium bowl and season them with salt and pepper.

  4. Pour the orange-mustard mixture over the chicken thighs. Wrap the chicken bowl with a silicone wrap (I like to use this reusable silicone strech lids) or a plastic wrap. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes*.

  5. Place the chicken thighs into a cast iron skillet* and bake for 40 minutes or until it gets the internal temperature of 165˚F.

  6. Serve the chicken thighs with rice or roasted veggies.

Recipe Notes

* You can marinate the chicken in the fridge overnight if you prefer.
* My cast iron skillet is pre-seasoned, so I didn't need to add oil in there before adding the chicken. If your skillet is not a cast iron skillet, please add a little bit of oil before adding the chicken.
