Maple-Dijon Baked Chicken Thighs

Ready for some back-to-school weeknight dinner ideas? Well here is a winner. This is a recipe I came across on Pinterest and adapted slightly after testing. It is really super easy and delicious. The combination of dijon and maple syrup make a delicious savory baked chicken dinner. This recipe is for a 1 kg package of chicken thighs which will make dinner for 4 in my family (2 adults and 2 children) plus leftovers. Kid approved by my soon to be 1st grader!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 kg package boneless skinless chicken thighs (approx 14 thighs)
  • Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh rosemary to garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and coat a 10 x 15 glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine Dijon, maple syrup and white wine vinegar in a glass measuring cup or bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Trim chicken thighs of excess fat and arrange in the baking dish.
  4. Season thighs with a sprinkling of coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper.
  5. Pour sauce over thighs and turn to coat.
  6. Bake chicken for 40 minutes, basting then turning the dish at the 20 minute mark.
  7. Remove chicken from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Garnish with fresh rosemary if desired.
