Valentine's Day Dinner

Dijon Orange Chicken Thighs, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Anyway, this is dijon orange chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. Everyone raved about this dish! It was very, very good.


* 8 Chicken Thighs
* Seasoned salt
* 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
* 1/3 cup orange juice
* 1 tablespoon soy sauce
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Sprinkle chicken with seasoned salt.

Heat vegetable oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken and brown about 5 minutes per side.

Mix orange juice, mustard, honey and cornstarch in a bowl; pour mixture over chicken in pan. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve chicken with a side of green beans and garnish with orange wedges, if you like.
