the thigh who loved me

This recipe comes from Alastair’s mom, though I’m not quite sure where she originally found it. It is delicious, and very easy to prepare. The only part that is at all time-consuming is cutting the fat off the chicken thighs. You could even save time by buying skinless thighs; prep would take no time at all!

This meal is a hit, because it covers all the bases: it’s sweet, tangy, and has a bit of a kick to it, but is still quite mild. It’s a nice substitute for BBQ chicken, and it’s nice and saucy. Extra sauce is great on potatoes, if you’re serving that on the side.

Ingredients

6 chicken thighs, skinned
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp grainy, old style mustard
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder

1 tbsp mozzarella

stirred
Stir well.

Pour sauce over the chicken, and use tongs to flip over, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Place in preheated oven, uncovered, for 55 minutes.
