Maple and mustard glazed chicken

I love pinterest and I found this recipe for "Man Pleasing Chicken" on Pinterest.  I have tried a lot of recipes that I have found on there so far and this one was so tasty I've made it twice.  It has so few ingredients, making it is a snap.  My only problem with it is that the burnt sugar from the maple syrup gets stuck on my pans!  Totally worth it though.  I made this with roasted tomatoes and zucchini dressed with parsley, garlic, salt, and olive oil.
 Maple and Mustard Glazed Chicken
from: Witty in the City

  • 1.5-2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place chicken in a 9x13 pan.
  2. Mix together mustard, maple syrup, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour sauce over chicken and coat thoroughly.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.  It depends on the size of your chicken thighs.  Coat chicken in sauce halfway through cooking to get extra flavor!  Enjoy with lots of veggies!
