    I watched the video and it shows using rosemary in the marinade, however the recipe does not call for it. Someone, please tell me if u made this with it w/o rosemary. I am making it this weekend and want to know. Thank you.

    This recipe was super easy and super delicious. I'd never marinated chicken with lemon before, that and the honey & course mustard sauce was a perfect trio. It's definitely going into rotation.

    I think this is a great recipe. Easy and fun. Although I don't know how to use the marinade afterwards.

    Chicken thighs are the least expensive meat that I have found. This recipe dresses them up and makes them special. Quick, easy, cheap to make, and my entire family will eat them.

    This is the 2nd time I've made this quick/easy recipe. The first time I didn't have time to marinate the chicken and it turned out quite tasty. This time, I'm giving it a couple of hours to marinate. Bet those flavors are even better!
