This is an excellent way to make chicken packed with a lot of flavor. This is called clean eating dijon chicken. I usually serve with roasted rosemary potatoes.

clean eating dijon chicken


1 lb boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
½ cup Dijon mustard (must be Dijon mustard, no substitutes)
¼ cup pure maple syrup (again, no substitutes. No fake Aunt Jemima stuff)
1 Tbs rice wine vinegar
¼ tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp rosemary, dried
1 Tbs cornstarch


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.

Sprinle with dried rosemary

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. You’ll create a nice, thick sauce to drizzle over your chicken. You need to do cornstarch mixing immediately because the liquid needs to be hot in order for it to thicken properly. If it’s still not thickening after 1 tbsp., you can add a little more.
