This is possibly one of the simplest chicken recipes and wonderfully sweet, sticky and juicy.

Maple Mustard Roasted Chicken


Maple Mustard Roasted Chicken


  • 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs (1 pkg.)
  • ½ C Maple Syrup
  • ¼ C Dijon Mustard
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon (rubbed between your palms to break up and release the oils)
  • a pinch of crushed red pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. In casserole dish or other high sided baking pan, place your chicken thighs in a single layer and generously season with salt and pepper front and back.
  3. In a small bowl, combine syrup, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, tarragon, and red pepper, and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour syrup mixture slowly over the chicken thighs making sure that each thigh is covered in sauce.
  5. Bake UNCOVERED at 450° for about 30 mins or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165° or it’s no longer pink. The top of the chicken will be slightly charred in spots and the sauce will have condensed.
  6. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
