This Chicken Thighs recipe smothered in Spinach Mustard Cream Sauce is heavenly and ready in 20 minutes!

Chicken Thighs in Spinach Mustard Cream Sauce

This is my first time making a recipe using chicken thighs as I usually use chicken breasts so I was very curious on how this would turn out. It all came together nicely and was so delicious and creamy. The spinach, whole grain and dijon mustard really brought out the flavor in the chicken. 

If you don’t have chicken thighs you could also use chicken breasts if you would like to. A good place to get chicken breasts are from Butcher Box. They have the best free-range, organic chicken that are delivered right to your door so you don’t have to leave the house. You can pick your own box and choose how often you want it delivered.

    It was delicious and I was a stranger to chicken thighs a while back. They have much more flavor than chicken breasts and are much more tender. I loved the flavors of the ingredients, however I added 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup chicken broth before wilting the spinach because I felt that the cream sauce was too thick without the added cup of liquids. Either way, I thought the flavors were delicious!
