Pantry Poultry

I am not sure how this recipe hasn't ended up on my blog yet.  I have been making this chicken dish for a while now.  It is the perfect recipe to have in your back pocket.  It's everything a go-to weeknight recipe should be: quick, easy, made solely with pantry staples, interesting and most importantly delicious.  This recipe is so full of flavor and I love to make these chicken thighs when we get bored of plain grilled chicken, but I don't have time for an overly involved recipe.  I love the spicy and sweet aspect of this recipe, it can't be beat.  And the best part is that you can have this on the table in less than 20 minutes, including prep time!

I adjusted this recipe for our preferences and made it last night. Left out the cumin (didn't have any) and added 1 Tablespoon of stone ground mustard to the sauce. It was so good, I was amazed at the flavor that was packed into it!

Thank you for sharing this recipe, we will definitely be using it again!
