- 1 family sized package of chicken thighs
- 1 onion sliced
- ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup mustard
- Lemon pepper, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder,
- Basil or pesto seasoning (cayenne pepper optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Rinse chicken thighs and arrange in appropriate sized deep baking pan skin side down, or for reduced fat, remove skin. You want exposed meat on top. Brush meat well with soy sauce covering each piece lightly but not soaking it which will overpower the other flavors. Sprinkle on garlic and onion powders, lemon pepper, rosemary (be careful not too much) and pesto seasoning. Add cayenne pepper if you love hot spicy foods like I do!
Now squirt on enough mustard to allow you to brush each piece of chicken to just cover them. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place on top rack of preheated oven and set timer for 35 minutes. When the timer goes off, remove the foil and cover the chicken with sliced onions. Bake another 15 minutes. Mix the 3 cheeses then add some basil and cover the chicken with the cheese mixture and bake another 10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
