Man-Pleasing Chicken

I came across this recipe on Pinterest (every woman's new obsession), and with a name like "Man-Pleasing Chicken," I couldn't resist. This recipe was adapted from law school food blogger Witty in the City, so I decided it would be best to try on my lawyer boyfriend. Needless to say, it was man pleasing.

I can honestly say that I don't think I have ever tasted something like this before. This chicken really was the most savory thing I have ever eaten. Even though the sauce calls for maple syrup and rice wine vinegar, it didn't even have the slightest taste of sweetness or acidity. The only way to describe it is savory, and it is something you just need to taste for yourself.

So now for the recipe you've all been waiting for...

Man-Pleasing Chicken
Serves 3

1.5 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (from Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
fresh rosemary

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Mix together mustard, maple syrup, rice wine vinegar and mix thoroughly
  3. Put chicken thighs into an oven-safe baking dish
  4. Salt and pepper the thighs
  5. Pour mixture over the chicken thighs
  6. Turn the thighs over again so they are fully coated
  7. Bake the chicken thighs for 40 minutes, basting the tops of the chicken halfway through
  8. Take out of oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving
  9. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and serve
The meal is that easy and that good!
