‘Messing Around’ in the kitchen with Colman’s

My dad literally loves to mess around in the kitchen. I tell him he should be on the Food Network show Chopped because he’s great at creating amazing recipes on the fly out of random things in the house or when he’s planning on making one thing and is missing ingredients and has to make due with what he has. He can literally just throw together amazing dishes without a recipe or a game plan and they always come out absolutely fabulous. It blows my mind.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I constantly spam my dad’s food all over Instagram Stories. He tries to claim he’s not a chef but honestly he missed his calling. As I’ve gotten older and expanded my palette, I’ve grown to truly appreciate his gift for creating fantastic meals. One of my favorite things to do is cook with him, (more accurately, taking a hundred pictures to try and document every step) and of course attempting to jot down the exact recipe in hopes of one day being able to try and replicate his marvelous masterpieces. I should mention my dad never measures anything making this nearly an impossible task unless you count him saying “a bit of this” and a “skosh of that”.

Last night we decided to “mess around” in the kitchen with Colman’s and came up with two different recipes featuring Colman’s Mustard Prepared and Colman’s Dry Mustard Powder and though both can be enjoyed separately, they actually compliment each other quite well! The HOT Honey Mustard Sauce adds a pop of color to the plate while the tarragon and lemon zest add a fresh element. The crusted chicken are a nice texture and all together, well- it’s one beautiful and tasty mouthful!
