My friend has a copy of the ‘I heart Trader Joe’s Cookbook’. I was glancing through it one day while waiting for her to finish getting ready. The recipe for Maple Mustard Chicken really caught my eye. So, I snapped a photo of it with my cell phone and promised myself I’d make it.
I forgot about it. I have bad short term memory.
Three months later, I was looking through my photos and saw the recipe! I put the ingredients on my shopping list and made it a few days later.
It was AH-mazing. So, so delicious!
Maple Dijon Chicken
1 lb Boneless Chicken Thighs
½ Cup Dijon Mustard
¼ Cup Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
Preheat oven to 450F.
Place chicken in the bottom of a sprayed glass baking dish.
Mix mustard, syrup, and vinegar. Pour over chicken.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.
I served this with crock pot bacon cheddar potatoes, and it was awesome. I’ve also served it with plain rice and pasta before. They’re equally as good, and you can dress them with the leftover sauce!
I happen to love dark meat chicken. Boneless thighs are my favorite; dark meat but with most of the fat is cut off. Delicious! You could easily make this with bone-in chicken or even chicken breasts. Just adjust the cooking time for whatever you’re making.
