Colorful Eats: Mustard Roasted Chicken Thighs

Mustard Roasted Chicken ThighsI'm about to head off for some much needed rest and relaxation. In our current times, I hope that we all can recognize when we need to step away from it all to rejuvenate and refresh. It's that time for me. It's critical at any time but especially now when the world is a bit chaotic and frenzied. So my wish for you everyday is peace and harmony - may you find you find your way to your own Shangri-la. And good food.

But before I left, I just had to share the Home Chef Extraordinaire's latest flavorful take on chicken. This time, he's using thighs and he's concocted a dish that's great for lunch or dinner and perfect for kid's meals. The taste key is the use of fresh rosemary. It adds a depth of flavor to the dish and with the spicy brown mustard, provides an aromatic tanginess that is oh-so palate appealing. As is always his custom, to keep the dish healthy and juicy, the preparation is done in an Air Fryer but this main dish can be prepared in the oven as well. While the dish itself is not extremely colorful, you must admit that the addition of steamed brussel sprouts and carrots all on my beautiful serving platter makes it all photo fabulous! You can find the fast, super simple recipe below:
