After seeing this recipe time and time again on Pinterest and pinning it myself, I had to see what all the fuss was about. I headed over to Witty in the City where I originally saw the recipe. After reading loads and loads of rave reviews again, I decided to make it for dinner last night. The original recipe is from Trader Joe’s Cookbook, which I don’t have, so I’m not sure how much the recipe is adapted. You can find this recipe online often called Maple-Dijon Chicken, Maple-Mustard Chicken and Holy Yum Chicken. I am just going to call it good – really, really darn good chicken – family pleasing chicken! Both my girls loved it (11 and 17 years old) and my husband thought it was absolutely delicious, full of flavor! I loved it too, it was wonderful! What I loved the most was how simple it was to make. Just a few ingredients with very little prep time and in under an hour you have a fabulous meal.
These are the only ingredients you need along with bone-less, skinless chicken thighs and salt and pepper…
- If you are not a fan of mustard, you may not care for this dish.
- Unless you want to spend hours cleaning your baking dish, COVER WITH FOIL!
- *Maple Syrup, UPDATE (9/6/14)- Witty in the City only uses Pure Maple Syrup. After reading the comment section, some people say use pure maple syrup, some say you do not need to. I didn’t have pure maple syrup the first time and used what I had in the pantry, Log Cabin, and the chicken turned out great. I just made the chicken again this week using Pure Maple Syrup. Pure maple syrup made an already great dish even better, it was awesome! So if you have Pure Maple Syrup, I highly recommend using it. If not, it’s still great with maple syrup like Log Cabin.
- Fresh Rosemary is a must have! I added rosemary to the sauce before baking and then garnished with more once it was done.
- If you want your chicken to brown, you may need to place it under the broiler for a few minutes. Be sure you are using a metal, heat-safe baking dish.
- Bake the chicken uncovered.
- People have used chicken breast and bone-in chicken thighs with this recipe. You can read more in the comment section at Witty in the City.
