Maple Dijon Chicken With Fresh Rosemary

maple dijon chicken 2.1

I am on the eternal search for delicious main courses that are easy to prepare and can be made ahead of time. The good news is I found this maple Dijon chicken recipe which has all of the attributes I look for in a guest-worthy dish. There are only a few ingredients, the preparation is quick, and the chicken can be served warm or at room temperature! I found the recipe via Pinterest where you might have also seen it labeled as “world’s best chicken“. The title speaks the truth because this is by far the best chicken dish I have ever prepared. However you must be warned that Dijon mustard is a major component of this dish, so if that isn’t to your taste, this recipe is not for you. But if you are like me and find mustard to be one of the great flavors of the world, then read on!

I am so excited about this chicken that I decided to make a video explaining how I make it. Enjoy!

Maple Dijon Chicken With Fresh Rosemary

Ingredients:

4-8 chicken breasts (I use bone in, skin on when cooking for guests. The pictures are of boneless, skinless which also works quite well.)

1/2 cup Dijon mustard

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar

salt & pepper to taste

1/2-1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Stir the mustard, syrup, and red wine vinegar together in a small bowl. Taste to see if needs any salt and then add both salt (if needed) and pepper to taste. Spread over the chicken which should be nestled in a baking dish. Sprinkle with the fresh rosemary and bake for 30-40 minutes or until your thermometer reads 165 degrees. Pull out and let rest for at least 5-10 minutes. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.

    What a delightful alternative to honey & mustard chicken! Will definitely be trying this one.

    This looks so much nicer than the sauce in a jar. I will be trying this very soon.

  5. Thanks so much for posting this. I’m looking for more good chicken recipes.

    What kind of stove/oven do you have? It looks vintage in style but not like a well worn appliance. It’s also not too big but gives you 2 ovens. Something I really need!

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    Hi Bethany,

    You inspired me – I tried this chicken last night except that I didn’t have rosemary so I used thyme. It was, indeed, excellent!

    Thank you :-)

    I fixed this tonight and it was so easy! I had chicken tenders on hand, so I used those and we ate them over fresh spinach. This is definitely going into my weekly recipe rotation, so thank you!

  8. […] I’ve made this chicken recipe twice recently, it is that easy and […]
