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.
