Man-Pleasing Chicken (Simple Dinner Recipe)
This recipe originally was posted on "Witty in the City" and went viral on Pinterest. It was adapted from the "I Love Trader Joe's" cookbook. I can see why this recipe is popular, because it's absolutely delicious! My husband, and adult son, love this dish and I've made it several times. The sauce is a savory/sweet blend of Dijon Mustard and maple syrup, with just a bit of rice wine vinegar. It comes together in minutes, and slowly bakes to a golden brown with a self-made gravy. I've slightly adapted the ratio of mustard to maple syrup, but adjust to your own taste. Go ahead! Try it! You'll love it!


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs*
  • 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard (don't use yellow mustard)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (don't use pancake syrup)
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Optional: fresh chopped rosemary, as a garnish
  • NOTE: I've made this with bone-in, skin on chicken thighs, too
