Baked Maple & Mustard Chicken

If you’re looking for a new and easy chicken recipe, look no further!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and although I wouldn’t consider it “The World’s Best Chicken” like the title says, it is pretty awesome!  The chicken was really juicy and had the right amount of flavour. Since the recipe makes 4 servings and it’s just my husband and I, we had leftovers … and I am happy to report that the dish was just as good the second time around.

I served this Maple Mustard Chicken with Skinny Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and they really complemented the sweet and savouriness of this recipe.

Here’s what you will need …

  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper
  • Fresh rosemary (I omitted this ingredient)

  • In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, syrup, and vinegar.
  • Place chicken breasts into 9×13 rimmed baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour mustard mixture over chicken. Make sure each breast is coated. Put some more pepper on, if you please (I didn’t).

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my husband and I did!
