Also, in the middle of this podcast my husband Ricky sends me an “urgent” text message: the recipe for Mustard Chicken. As promised, here is the full recipe if you’re into easy, delicious chicken. I usually serve with sweet potatoes and fresh green beans. Mustard Chicken Ingredients: 1/4 cup melted butter 2 Tbs. yellow mustard Black pepper to taste ______________________________ 12 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs 1 tsp. Sage salt (1/2 tsp. sea salt + 1/2 tsp. dried sage) Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, mustard, black pepper, and Sage salt. Place the chicken thighs on a baking sheet or oven safe dish, and brush the mixture evenly over each one. Bake for 45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165 degrees F when inserted into the center of one of the chicken thighs. *Recipe taken from cookbook, Practical Paleo, by Diane Sanfilippo, BS, NC.
