Maple Herb Dijon Chicken, “Simply” Delicious

Maple Herb Dijon Chicken, “Simply” Delicious

Best All

Sweet, slightly salty, savory & with a hint of herbs; Baked chicken at its finest with a rich and creamy maple Dijon sauce. This luscious dish is easy, delicious with minimal prep time that offers gourmet style results. A light crust will form on top of the chicken and the garlic will slightly caramelize—great presentation!  Serve over top steamed, buttered rice and a side salad. I chose a chopped salad with simple Italian vinaigrette. Serves: 2-4

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Dijon mustard (no substitutions please)

3 garlic cloves, minced or sliced thin

1 teaspoon dried Herbs de Provence or Italian herbs

1/4 cup maple syrup

4 chicken breasts or thighs, or a combination (bone in)

Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400*

In a small bowl add mustard, maple syrup, garlic, herbs, salt & pepper; whisk until smooth. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Dip in sauce and turn to coat. Place chicken side by side in a shallow baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over chicken. Bake uncovered for about 45-50 minutes, until cooked through. When chicken is done spoon remaining sauce over chicken. Top with additional salt & pepper if desired.
