This recipe is delicious and so easy for a weeknight supper. The only thing I do differently is to use 3 TB maple syrup, rather than 2 TB. If I'm feeling particularly 'saucy', I double the mustard mixture.

Perfect for OMAC. I used this recipe with 3 others to put down 90 chicken thighs in preparation for a family reunion. After adding the marinade, I layed the chicken flat on a cookie sheet in the freezer, as: 1)the packages stacked neatly on top of each other, and 2) depending on the amount of people I was serving, I would take out 2 - 3 packages of chicken, placed them in the sink with tempid water.. and they were thawed within 30 - 45 minutes. When the packages were almost thawed, I placed them in the fridge until I was ready for the grill. I love anything with maple syrup and Dijon mustard, so this recipe was a a given for me. As for the family...well, they loved it and were requesting the recipe! It is fast, easy and can be doubled and triplicated quite easily. I would highly recommend this marinade. Thanks for the posting!
