Pineapple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

Pineapple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

Dark meat chicken has to be my favorite protein to use in the kitchen.  Why?  Well, for one, it’s super cheap! Chicken leg quarters (which consist of the thigh and leg) are usually available for about 79 cents per pound around these parts.  I can’t think of a cheaper animal protein source.  Instead of buying already pre-cut chicken legs or thighs, you can save yourself about 40-50 cents per pound by buying chicken leg quarters and splitting them yourself at home.  Two, dark meat chicken is FULL of flavor and stands up very well to long cook times.  Unlike a chicken breast, which is super easy to overcook, it’s almost impossible to overcook dark meat chicken, especially when it’s on the bone.

Ingredients

  • 8-10 chicken legs and/or thighs, skin on
  • 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup pineapple preserves
