Out Of This World Chicken!
(Adapted from tablefortwoblog)
1 1/2 – 2 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken thighs (fat trimmed)
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 TBSP rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 TBSP cornstarch
2 tsp dried rosemary
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 8×8 oven-proof pan with 2 layers of tin foil. In small bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, maple syrup, rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper.
Place the chicken thighs in the foil layered pan then pour the mixture on top of it. Turn the chicken around in the sauce to make sure it gets all coated. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and let chicken sit for 5 minutes, then transfer to a plate. Do NOT discard the liquid. Immediately after plating chicken, whisk in the 1 tbsp. of cornstarch into the liquid in the pan.
If it’s still not thickening after 1 tbsp., you can add a little more. Sprinkle rosemary on top before serving.
