Family Pleasing Chicken

The original title of this recipe is Man-Pleasing Chicken - which it is, but it is also me-pleasing and children-pleasing too, so I changed the title to suit me. Super duper easy and yummy! One of those dishes that EVERYONE in my family loves- which doesn't happen very often! And... I get to use the rosemary growing in my garden box. I've served it with mashed potatoes and baked potatoes, but it would probably be really good served with rice.

-Witty in the Kitchen

1 ½ lbs. boneless-skinless chicken thighs
½ cup dijon mustard
¼ cup real maple syrup (don't use Log Cabin for this recipe!)
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar/rice wine vinegar
Fresh rosemary, chopped
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together mustard, maple syrup and rice vinegar.

Line 9x13 baking dish with foil. Put chicken thighs in the dish and salt and pepper. Pour mustard mixture over the chicken, turning to coat.

Bake for 20 minutes. Turn each piece of chicken over and return to oven for 20 more minutes or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.

Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with sauce and a sprinkling of fresh rosemary.
