    Chicken dijon is another quick and easy one-dish meal. Heat up that cast iron and make a deliciously healthy, carb free and gluten free dish all flavored with the tang and zest of course Dijon mustard.  A family favorite!

    Why do all chicken dinner recipes use chicken breasts? Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against them, but man I get tired of them. So I’m straying away from chicken breasts and giving chicken thigh recipes a chance!

    I’m also tired of how much they cost. For a fractions of the cost, you can substitute any recipe into a chicken thigh recipe, bone-in or filets, for nearly any chicken breast recipe. Drumsticks too!

    I’d rather compromise the calories and fat for flavor, but if you really want to cut out a few more, go ahead and use chicken breasts in this recipe. But thighs have oh, so much more flavor and depth.

    Mustard and apple are a match made in heaven. The sweet of apple balances tart of Dijon mustard. I prefer a heavy grained mustard to also add texture and sophistication, but feel free to use a smooth Dijon mustard if you’d like.
