Recipe: Holy Yum Chicken

Here's another recipe I LOVE!  I made it for the first time maybe 3 months ago, and this is the 3rd time I've made it.  That's saying a lot for me!  I am always trying something new from one of my favorite food blogs or Pinterest.  So that fact that I have thought to make it two additional times means it is good and SUPER EASY!!!

I honestly don't remember where I found it.  Maybe Pinterest?  I might have just googled chicken recipes, I don't know.  Regardless, it's delicious!

Here's the blog I found it on: Table for Two.  This isn't a blog I frequent, but I probably should because she has other stuff that sounds good, too.


3 or 4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)
1 T. rice wine vinegar
1/4 t. salt
1/4t. pepper
1 T. cornstarch
Rosemary for garnishing tops of chicken

You must follow the directions very specifically otherwise it won't turn out.  Place your chicken in a small baking dish (I used my pyrex-8X8).  I double lined it with foil and then sprayed it with cooking spray.  Place your thawed chicken in the dish. Mix your Dijon, maple syrup, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour sauce over chicken.  Bake the chicken for 40 minutes @ 450. 

Straight out of the oven!

Close up!!! The top of the chicken is browned to perfection!

I know 450 sounds really high for a really long time, but it turns out great!!!  That is why you must put the chicken in a smaller dish, so it is closer together.  If you used a 9X13, it would spread the chicken and sauce out too much and burn it up.

After cooking, take chicken out of pan and place it on a plate.  With the reserved sauce stir in a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the sauce.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with dry or fresh rosemary.  How easy is that!

It's easy and impressive.  When you plate up your food, drizzle the sauce on top of each chicken breast and sprinkle on the rosemary.  It looks fancier than regular chicken, and the taste is dynamite!

I always serve this with brown rice and a veggie.  The sauce is so good you'll want to drizzle a little on your rice, too!
