Honey Mustard Lime Chicken

Several weeks ago, the “Lost” finale aired. If you watched all of the related shows, you would literally have been watching TV for 6 hours straight — from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Rick and I didn’t sit in front of the TV quite that long, but we did watch from 7 to 11:30 p.m., which was long enough for me!

Anyway, in preparation for this event, I thought that if we’re going to be sitting in front of the TV for 4+ hours, we should probably be doing something while we’re at it! That’s where my idea for our “Lost” dinner party comes in. I’m always looking for an excuse to have a dinner party, even if it’s just Rick and me (which was the case this time). It’s so much fun for me to create a menu and organize my day to make sure everything gets made on time … I don’t know, I just love it!

I wanted to create an island-themed dinner party to go with the “Lost” theme. Rick kind of laughed at me, because he said the recipes I chose weren’t really island-themed, but whatever … I think they are!

I chose these Honey Mustard Lime Chicken legs as our main dish (now, isn’t lime island-y?? Sheesh.) They had a really great flavor to them, although the honey mustard dominated. The meat got so tender, it literally fell off the bone, which makes it a little hard to eat — I definitely recommend using a fork! If you prefer chicken wings, that can be done as well! For directions on using chicken wings instead of legs, check out this post — just swap out the ingredients for the sauce and use the sauce from this recipe instead!

Honey Mustard Lime Chicken
8 chicken legs
1/2 cup honey mustard
3 tbsp. lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp. soy sauce

Combine all ingredients in the crockpot and stir to make sure all the chicken pieces are evenly coated. Cook on low for about 6 hours, no more than 8.

If you’re interested, the rest of our “Lost” party menu was:
Honey mustard lime chicken
Hot spinach red pepper dip
French bread rolls
Peanut butter and brownie cream torte
