Lemon Dijon Chicken

You all asked for dinner ideas and this will quickly become a crowd favorite. It is easy to whip together and can be prepared the morning or afternoon before dinner. I love to serve it with a side of green beans and sweet potatoes but it would pair great with rice. I think grilled chicken thigh is just the best but you can also cook it on the stove stop.

Lemon Dijon Chicken SERVINGS: 4

Ingredients Marinade:

  • 4-6 pieces of chicken thigh
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
