Pinterest Recipe – Man Pleasing Chicken


Man Pleasing Chicken from witty in the city

I am a Pinterest addict.  I love Pinterest. I have found so many great projects and amazing recipes.  There is one chicken recipe so far that has been the favorite in my household.  I CRAVE this chicken it is soooo good!!

I found this chicken recipe on Pinterest and it was pinned from  The authors of the post adapted the recipe from “The I ❤ Trader Joe’s Cookbook” by Cherie Mercer Twoky.


  • Chicken thighs- 1 package (1.5 lbs)
  • Dijon mustard- 1/2 cup
  • Maple syrup- 1/4 cup
  • Rice wine vinegar- 1 tablespoon
  • Fresh rosemary  (I prefer not to use the rosemary and use green onions for freshness)
1.  Preheat oven to 450F.
2.  Mix together 1/2 cup dijon mustard, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar. I added a little bit extra of all so I could have extra sauce. It’s sooooo yummy over rice!! 
3. Put the package of chicken thighs into an oven-proof baking dish. Salt & pepper the thighs and pour the sauce mixture over them. Turn the thighs over a couple of times to get them fully coated. The recipe says to use a foil-lined dish, however, I baked them in one of my Pampered Chef stoneware bakers and did not use foil. 
4.  Bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165F. Baste the chicken with the sauce halfway through cooking. I like to then broil them for about 5-7 minutes to get the crispiness shown in the photo.
5.  Let the chicken rest for a few minutes but make sure to spoon some sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with herbs or green onions for taste.
I recommend serving over brown rice.  Just writing this is making me salivate and dream of making some of this chicken for dinner tonight!!  I like to use the bone in thighs but feel free to try it with the boneless thighs.

There is no copyright infingement meant here and I have given credit to all I can for where I obtained the recipe.
