  • 6 - 8 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
  • oil for searing

For the rub

  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp dry mustard powder
  • salt and pepper

For the honey-mustard sauce

  • 3 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp chicken stock
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Pat chicken thighs dry.
  • Combine the rub ingredients and work well into the chicken thighs, covering all surfaces.
  • Whisk together the honey-mustard sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Heat a large heavy-bottomed oven-proof skillet on stove. When heated, add oil to barely cover the surface. When it shimmers, add chicken thighs, skin side down. Sear for 3-4 minutes until golden brown, then turn and sear on the other side for 3 minutes or so.
  • Drain excess oil, then pour honey-mustard sauce over all.
  • Place skillet in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until meat thermometer indicates an internal temperature of 175°F. Remove from oven and serve.


Turmeric will stain. Protect your clothing and avoid using plastic utensils. I find that if you do get it on plastic or on your countertops, rub it with a little oil first, then use your usual cleaning method to remove it.
