Colorful Eats: Mustard Roasted Chicken Thighs
In our current times, I hope that we all can recognize when we need to step away from it all to rejuvenate and refresh. I'm sensing that it's almost that time again for me. It's critical at any time to be able to take a few steps back from it all but especially now when the world is getting better but is still 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.
Before I make any moves, I just had to share the Home Chef Extraordinaire's latest flavorful take on chicken. This time, he's using thighs but your favorite part of the chicken will do) 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:
