Man Pleasing Chicken

Not my title, or my recipe, but we sure do love it.

Man Pleasing Chicken is very easy to make. 
Just mix up the simple sauce, put it all over the chicken, and bake.

The sauce makes enough for 6 chicken thighs but I didn't have a big enough pan 
so I just cooked 4, so didn't use quite all the sauce.

The sauce:
1/2 c dijon mustard
1/4 c maple syrup (use the real stuff)
1 T rice vinegar

Mix the sauce and fully coat each piece of chicken with it, front and back.

Bake the chicken uncovered for 40 minutes at 450'
(baste the tops of the chicken with the sauce half way through)

Absolutely either line your pan with foil or use a disposable pan because you will not be able to
clean it after. Trust me on this. I ended up having to throw my pan away the first time I made this. 

But it's no big deal to just line your pan....
because look what happens to the pan after the chicken is done;

But no worries, The chicken is not burnt at all. It's just the weird way this recipe cooks. 
Just take the thighs out and throw the foil away. 

After you remove the chicken from the oven, sprinkle each piece with some fresh Rosemary.
What an outstanding blend of flavors.

Someday soon I will tell you about a new way we flavor our broccoli,
 that we cannot seem to get enough of lately.

I got Man Pleasing Chicken from Witty in the City.
Once you see her pictures you will have to make it.

Yes, but does it have to be thighs? How about chicken breasts?

Chicken breasts cooked high like this for that length of time would be too dried out. It might work if you were to change the cooking method...lower temp and for only 20 min or so.

Jill, I actually went to the store to buy the ingredients for this sauce as I already had chicken breasts. Didn't read the comment about the difference between thighs and breasts before I made it and used the same times and temperatures. It was delicious and the chicken breasts were not dry at all. I had six of them. Richard loved it even though we didn't eat until 7:00 p.m.!!!

Thanks for inspiring me!
