Recipe – Tarragon Mustard Chicken Thighs

Life seems to stay busy.  For years, I would say, “it is so busy right now” or “this time of year is hectic”.  Then, I realised I was saying it and hearing it from others incessantly.  So since life is, as established, busy, I try to find recipes I can prep the day or night before and just throw in the oven when I race in from work and/or the gym.
