What You’ll Need

Another great thing about this recipe is the simplicity of its ingredient lineup. Minimum effort, maximum flavor!

  • Coconut Oil: Or butter, melted.
  • Stone Ground Mustard: Use gluten-free mustard if needed.
  • Balsamic Vinegar: For some serious sweet and sour goodness.
  • Dried Thyme: Don’t use fresh thyme – it doesn’t have as strong of a flavor.
  • Dried Sage: This earthy and peppery herb is always a great seasoning for chicken.
  • Salt & Pepper: Added to taste.
  • Chicken Thighs: Bone-in and skin-on.
