This chicken is not "nasty stuff" as some others have written and if you thought so it is probably because you did not use legitimate maple syrup but Mrs. Butterworth's!! And if you did use REAL maple syrup and still did not like it, then just say it was not your cup of tea. Simple as that.

Yes, this is man-pleasing. I've made it a few times. I've switched the ratio of Dijon Mustard and Maple syrup to be less mustard and more maple. Whatever you do, don't use pancake syrup! It's a family favorite, and I love how easy and fast it is to have on the table.

The perfect dish - so ridiculously easy and so delicious. My son LOVES it. He was recently asked what the best thing about mom is and his answer was this chicken. Something magical happens with the simple ingredients that creates a wonderful and savory sauce. I make extra every time. Yum!
