In this video, you’ll see how to make a sweet, hot-mustard marinade for baked (or grilled) chicken. Chef John is using chicken thighs here, but you can use any part you like. For the marinade, you’ll sweeten Dijon mustard with brown sugar, and then spice it up with cayenne, chipotle powder, garlic, and red wine vinegar. It’s super easy. He also shows you a great trick for getting the marinade down beneath the skin and into the thigh. Watch the video, then get Chef John's recipe for Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Thighs. Serve them with the delicious juice, which you’ll reduce in a skillet. See more Chef John videos >>
