Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl whisk together Dijon mustard, maple syrup, vinegar, and garlic.
  • Place chicken thighs in a shallow baking dish.
  • Pour ¾ of the marinade over the chicken thighs.
  • Place extra marinade in the refrigerator.
  • Sprinkle rosemary and thyme leaves over chicken.
  • Cover chicken and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • When ready to cook chicken heat spray a griddle or grill pan with olive oil spray.
  • Heat the grill over medium-high heat.
  • Place chicken thighs on the grill pan and grill for about 5 minutes per side.
  • During grilling baste with extra marinade. 

Notes

  • Marinated the thighs for at least 30 minutes. If you want to prep the recipe earlier you can marinate longer.
  • Use pure maple syrup, not pancake syrup.
  • If you don't have sherry wine vinegar (or can't find it) you can use red wine vinegar.
  • If you don't have fresh herbs don't buy them unless you have another recipe to use them up. You can you dried rosemary and thyme (about ½ teaspoon each) or just omit them both. The herbs are a nice touch, but I never want anyone to spend money on something that might go to waste.
