Man Pleasing Chicken

Man Pleasing Chicken
 In honor of Father's Day why not serve this to your favorite father! I think he would be very pleased!
 Although I think this recipe should be called 'Man and Woman Pleasing Chicken' because I was VERY pleased also!

 I found the recipe here. It consists of boneless skinless chicken thighs, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, rice wine vinegar and rosemary. I omitted the rosemary because I'm not a fan of that spice. This chicken was so tender, sweet and savory!  I'll have to double the recipe next time because everyone was scraping their dishes clean! I served it over white rice as you can see in my photo above.

Oh, and one other thing...please line your baking pan with foil, as suggested in the recipe directions, because this was a killer to clean. Yes, I forgot to line my baking dish and paid the price! The sugar in the maple syrup was almost impossible to clean off the baking pan. The picture in the recipe link shows the blackened glass baking dish. So the author of that post must not have followed her own directions or she may have learned that lesson after making the recipe. But it was all worth it because we truly enjoyed this chicken!

place them in the foil lined baking dish.
Pour the mustard mixture over the chicken thighs, turning them to coat.

When done baking, remove from oven and top chicken with light sprinkling of fresh chopped rosemary if desired.

  2. Can you sub chicken breast for the thighs?

    1. I can't see why you couldn't...but I would use bone-in breasts for more flavor and moisture. Please let me know how it works out for you. Thank you =D
