This dish is so good - I wish my presentation was as good as the chickens flavor was. My sorry side dish of Jasmine rice and random vegetables pales next to this very flavorful chicken dish. I didn't even display it on one of my nicer plates. I hope you'll forgive me and try this chicken anyway. We make chicken thighs a lot in this house because we prefer the taste of the darker meat. These
Honey Pecan Chicken Thighs are flavored perfectly with Dijon mustard, honey and curry powder before they are dredged in the pecans. Enjoy!!
