I’ll explain the recipe step by step here, and then when you get to the bottom you’ll find the recipe in printable form so you won’t have to scroll up and down a million times while you’re making it.

You’re welcome 🙂

When I said this has minimal ingredients, I seriously wasn’t joking.

All you’ll need is:

  • 3 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 1/2 cup of Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 cup of honey

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • salt & pepper to taste

First, combine all of your ingredients except the chicken in a large bowl.

Stir until everything is mixed together really well.

Salt & pepper your chicken thighs.

Place chicken thighs in the bowl and stir it around until the chicken is thoroughly coated in honey-mustardy-garlicky goodness.

Cover and place in refrigerator for an hour.

Or feel free to skip that part if you’re in a hurry, the chicken will still be delicious.

Preheat grill, or grill pan, or cast iron skillet (I like to keep my options open) over medium heat.

Cook chicken for 7 minutes on one side (or until chicken easily releases without sticking) and about 5 min on the other.

and for about 5 min on the other side.

Chicken is done when the internal temperature reaches 175 degrees Fahrenheit.

*Side note: chicken is actually safe to eat at 165 degrees F, but chicken thighs, in particular, are much too chewy when I take them off at that temp. Perfection is reached at 175 degrees in my opinion!

Enjoy the rest of your evening because dinner tonight was super fast, super easy, and super yummy!

I served this with roasted broccoli & cauliflower, and jasmine rice for the rice eaters in our home.

This 4 ingredient chicken that's perfect for busy weeknights! 

It heats up really well making it perfect for "planned leftovers" the next day!

I used an indoor grill pan for this recipe. It would work just as well in a heavy bottomed pan such as a cast iron skillet, you just won't get the pretty grill marks.
