Man-Pleasing Chicken Recipe

Hey all,

I HAVE to share this recipe. I made this for Pete and I a while ago and I was amazed at how delicious this tasted. It was quick, easy and packed a lot of flavour! I've tried this a few times, shared it, loved it, been thanked for sharing it.. so here I am! :)

I pinned this recipe a few years ago and left it sitting in my recipe board. On Saturday I went through my pins to find something new to try as I realized the only meat I had in my freezer was chicken breast. Although I altered this recipe by using the chicken breasts I have since tried it again and used thighs and it is just as good!

Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup dijon mustard or dijon honey mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar (though I have used red wine vinegar and it still tasted good)
6 chicken thighs - 1-1.5 pounds (or equivilant weight in breasts)
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a oven proof baking dish with foil (helps keep the sticky mess away from the dish!)
2. Mix Dijon mustard, maple syrup and wine vinegar together in a bowl.
3. Place chicken thighs in oven proof dish salt and pepper chicken.
4. Pour mustard, maple, vinegar mix over the the thighs.
5 Put in oven and bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. I re-basted the chicken every 15-20 mins.
6 Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.
7 Plate the chicken making sure to spoon some sauce over the top. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and enjoy!

You can find the full recipe here at Witty in the City.

Hope you enjoy and if you try please share your thoughts!
