  • Honey-Pecan Chicken Thighs by Coll'sCookin'

    This is very YUMMY! I suppose you could use breasts but they are not as flavorful.

    Honey-Pecan Chicken Thighs

    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp ground red pepper
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    8 skinned and boned chicken thighs
    3/4 cup honey, divided
    3/4 cup dijon mustard, divided
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cup finely chopped pecans
    1/2 tsp curry powder

    Garnish: Italian parsley springs

    Combine first 4 ingredients; sprinkle evenly over chicken in a shallow dish.
    Stir together 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup mustard, and garlic; pour over chicken.
    Cover and chill 2 hours.

    Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.
    Dredge chicken in pecans; place on a lightly greased rack in an aluminum foil-lined broiler pan.

    Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until chicken is done.

    Stir together remaining 1/4 cup honey, remaining 1/4 cup mustard, and curry powder; serve sauce with chicken. Garnish if desired.

    Yield: 4 servings
