Dijon mustard, vinegar, and maple syrup
I’m back home in Omaha for the next week, which I am definitely enjoying! It’s nice to see friends, relax, and be with family for a bit before I move to Marshall, Minnesota this month! Anyways, I also like to get to try out new recipes with my family. Since they all are willing to try whatever, I pretty much get to do what I want in the kitchen! Yay! Yesterday, I tried a Pinterest recipe I have been wanting to try for quite a while called “World’s Best Chicken.” Come on, with that name, who wouldn’t? The best part of it is it just requires four simple ingredients plus some seasoning. All you need is chicken (we even used some turkey tenderloin and it worked well with that. I’ve read people using pork tenderloin too), dijon mustard, maple syrup (sounds weird but trust me), and a bit of vinegar (the original recipe calls for red wine vinegar but I used rice vinegar as didn’t have red wine vinegar. We had plenty of red wine though haha. Balsamic vinegar could work too). That’s it! Here’s the recipe:
Dijon Chicken Recipe
1 pound chicken (or pork/turkey tenderloin)
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup dijon mustard
Rosemary and thyme if have it and salt and pepper
1. Mix the vinegar, maple syrup and dijon in a small bowl.
2. Place chicken in a baking pan (I would use aluminum foil to make it less messy) and apply a good amount of salt and pepper. Then cover it with the sauce. Make sure to coat everything. Then add some thyme and rosemary if you have any.
3. Bake at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Then enjoy!
