Baked chicken is our favorite; this will work well when we have company since not everyone prefers dark meat as we do...Marinating not included in prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk mustard, maple syrup, 1 tablespoon oil, thyme, pepper and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Add chicken and turn to coat evenly. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 6 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F Set a wire rack on a large baking sheet.
  4. Combine breadcrumbs and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil on a plate. Dredge the skinned side of each chicken piece in the breadcrumbs (with drumsticks, dredge the meatier side) and arrange breaded-side up on the wire rack. Leave at least 1 inch between pieces.
  5. Bake until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 165°F, 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. Serve hot or let cool, refrigerate and serve chilled.

This was lovely & easy to do with ingredients I have on hand almost always. The kids weren't too keen on this...I think too much dijon flavour for them but hubby & I thought it was okay.

Very nice dish. I used breasts. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)

I made a quarter recipe of this for the two of us. It was good, but the marinade is more of a smear than a full blown marinade. I didn't notice much flavour from it in the finished dish-it seemed to be more of a glue to hold the crumbs on. We both really enjoyed the crunch of the fresh breadcrumbs and the moistness of the chicken so thank you for posting.
