Chicken Thighs with Mustard-Citrus Sauce

Oh. My. Gosh. These turned out so wonderfully tender and moist and flavorful. I will definitely be making this a part of our regular meal plan. I modified it quite a bit from the original, because it required frying with oil and I try to avoid frying. Anyway, they are wonderful and unique and I can highly recommend them

Chicken Thighs with Mustard-Citrus Sauce

4 whole boneless skinless chicken thighs, halved
3 tbsp chopped garlic
3 tbsp chopped shallots
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp worcerstershire sauce
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
salt and pepper

Salt and pepper all sides of chicken thigh halves. Place in bottom of crockpot. Combine all remaining ingredients in a bowl until well mixed and pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours. Increase heat to high and cook until sauce slightly thickens, about 45 minutes. Remove chicken to plate and spoon sauce over each piece. Serve hot. Makes 8 servings.

  1. Hi there chika. Stopped in to read your blog and noticed that your background isn't working. Photobucket has a thing where they require that you log in every so often to keep your images active, I think it's every 60 days. All you have to do is log in to your Photobucket account and your background here will work again; you don't even need to re-upload the image or modify the link.

    I had to highlight your text so that I could read it because it doesn't show up well on this temporary blue background. However, that said; your recipe's sound AWESOME! Despite the fact that I loathe cooking I am really trying to make an effort to make better food choices and I know that the best way to do that is to prepare food myself. I will be raiding your recipes for ideas when I make my next grocery list. Thank's so much for sharing them!
