World's Best Chicken

The World’s Best Chicken

Serves 4
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup Dijon mustard

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Salt & pepper


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together mustard, syrup, and vinegar.  Place chicken breasts into 9×13 greased baking dish. Season with salt & lots of pepper. Pour mustard mixture over chicken. Make sure each breast is coated. No need to marinate. I love that because I hate marinating/often forget to until it’s too late.  Bake for about 30-40 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Exactly how long you should leave it in is based on personal preference and your oven. I like my chicken borderline dried out, so I leave it in the full 40 minutes, and sometimes even bump the heat up to 450 degrees to really get the flavors baked on. (Line your pan with foil to keep clean up easy!) There will be extra sauce in the pan, which you can elect to toss out or use for extra flavoring. You do not need to cover the pan with foil.
Season with chopped rosemary.
