Herbed Chicken Thighs with Honey Mustard Glaze

Glazing meats is a two step process. First the meat is seasoned and essentially cooked through. Second, the meat is basted with a glaze and heated quickly, just before serving. This Herbed Chicken with Honey Mustard has a wonderful balance of flavors and is not too sweet. The use of the two mustards adds depth of flavor as well as an attractive look from the whole grain mustard. I would serve this dish for my finest occasions as I think it rivals Duck, Cornish Hen, or any other Poultry Dish......with a lot less effort. I love these Chicken Thighs.
