And the ingredients list? Minimal. Dijon mustard, maple syrup, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. The original recipe calls for a sprinkle of Rosemary after baking, but I subbed that and mixed about half a teaspoon of Cayenne pepper into the mustard mix instead for a little kick.
Verdict? I think this could very well be a best. The mixture is quick, easy, and you probably have everything on hand. I'm glad I added the Cayenne because I am a lover of spice, but it would easily be fantastic without. No marinating is involved, just mix and pour over raw chicken. The original recipe called for 40 minutes on 450 degrees, but I thought that seemed like a bit much, so I did 50 minutes covered on 350. It turned out perfect and juicy and goes really well with corn casserole. This is a fantastic weeknight dinner option and I just love how easy it is. The flavor is fantastic and I can't wait to play around with it a little more. I think next time I'll roll the chicken in the mixture and then coat with breadcrumbs or panko for a crispy dish. Another win for Pinterest and stumbling across a recipe I might not have found otherwise. Poor Food Network hasn't been visited in ages.
