  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs
  • a few tablespoons Dijon
  • a few handfuls fresh herbs, sage, thyme, rosemary
  • a few splashes of Worcestershire
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • a few chopped garlic cloves
  • a bit of chicken stock, roughly 1/2 cup
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Marinate 6 chicken thighs in Dijon mustard, a few chopped garlic cloves, a bit of Worcestershire sauce, s+p and whole herbs, sage, thyme, rosemary. Marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Sear thighs in hot olive oil on both sides until crusty and browned. Remove to a plate.
  3. Toss in chopped shallot + a few cloves of smashed garlic, and sauté a bit in the leftover chicken fat (adding a bit more olive oil if needed) Season with salt and pepper.
