Servings 4 people


  • 1 9 inch cast iron skillet


  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 6-8 whole chicken thighs we use butcher box
  • sea salt & black pepper to coat chicken and to season after
  • 1/2-3/4 cup organic flour just to coat the chicken
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth I use homemade or kettle and fire
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/3-1/2 cup half and half or coconut cream it'll reduce down, so depends on how much sauce you want to top your rice.
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh parsley optional to top


  • Turn your cast iron skillet on medium heat
  • Pat dry your chicken thighs, dredge with flour and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
  • Coat the cast iron with avocado oil and place the chicken thighs in the hot pan.
  • Cook for 5-8 minutes on one side to get them nice and brown, then flip and cook another 5-8 depending on the size of your thighs. Mine are pretty small and thin.
  • Once the thighs are cooked through to your liking take them out of the pan and cover to keep warm
  • Add your broth to the hot cast iron pan and scrape up all the goodness from the chicken thighs into your sauce.
  • Add in your mustards, honey and cream / milk and whisk together. Add back in your chicken thighs and cook with them uncovered for 3-5 minutes to reduce the sauce.
  • Serve over rice and add in a vegetable! Enjoy!
