This all began with a rather poor shopping trip earlier in the week, didn’t pick up half the things I was going to need so I either had to go back to the shops or be a bit creative. I went for the latter.
- 400g boneless chicken thigh
- 3 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 2 tbsp clear honey
- 1 tbsp oil (peanut would be best due to the lack of flavour)
- 1 tsp dried thyme
Method of Preparation:
- Trim the chicken thighs of any extra fat, chop into bite sized pieces and put to one side
- In a large bowl, mix together the mustard, honey and oil
- Mix the chicken pieces into the marinade so they’re all covered then cover and marinate in the fridge for at least half an hour and up to 24 hours
- Heat some oil in a hot pan and add the chicken
- Stir fry until cooked and serve with your choice of accompaniments
That’s it, really simple. I put it with a simple salad and after marinading the whole cooking and plating process took me less than 15 minutes. The only thing I did different was to leave the thighs whole and both Wife and I agreed that it would have been better cut up first.
That said the flavour of this is really good. You get some heat from the mustard, sweetness from the honey and it’s finished off really nicely with the thyme. Creativity comes good I say!
That’s it for today, a really simple (and really cheap) recipe born out of necessity with really quite excellent results, enjoy.
