Maple Dijon Chicken Thighs – only 6 ingredients! No prep. Just put in the pan and bake. Such an easy weeknight dinner!! Chicken things, dijon mustard, maple syrup, white vinegar, lemon juice and rosemary. Everyone cleaned their plates! #chicken #chickenrecipe #easydinnerrecipe
I’ve seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest for a while. It appears to originally have come from Witty In The City. I was skeptical that the chicken was as great as everyone said. Mustard and maple syrup didn’t sound good to me – at all. I finally broke down and let me tell you, this is the BEST CHICKEN EVER! I was stunned. I did tweak the original recipe a bit to make sure I would like it.
This was so delicious. We both really loved the sauce. I even poured it over our mashed potatoes. This cooks at 450 degrees – don’t worry, it turns out great. I was concerned that the chicken would be overdone, but it wasn’t. It was tender and juicy. There was only enough leftover for one of us to eat it for lunch the next day. I made the ultimate sacrifice and let Chicken Legs have it. Don’t worry, I plan on doubling the recipe next time so we can both have leftovers.
