I won't live long enough to make all the recipes that I've pinned, but I'm slowly working my way through them. It's interesting how one particular Pinterest photo can make a recipe go viral. My own "Best Meatloaf Recipe" received 25,000 hits in one day! This chicken recipe became a hit with Pinterest, and the original blogger is "Witty in the City". (The recipe was adapted from the "I Love Trader Joe's Cookbook"). "Witty" has received over 400 comments for that recipe! After making it, I can see why. It's that good.
NOTE: There was a lot of fat on the surface, that I carefully drained out. Served with brown rice, it was a big hit at the dinner table. My men spied my plate, hoping for more.
ROUND #3: I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I still got a little fat on the surface, but nobody complained. I also started lining my baking dish with foil, for easier cleanup. So far, this has been my favorite version-- boneless thighs. Just pour sauce over 'em, bake it and enjoy. Our favorite side dish is brown rice.
TASTING NOTES: No matter how you choose to prepare this recipe, it's going to be good. I no longer measure when I make the sauce. Adjust the flavor to your taste buds liking, to balance the Dijon to Maple ratio. I think this sauce would be delicious with pork chops, and I'm going to test that theory. This is the perfect quick meal to make, after a long day at the office. Pssssssssst, I made the pork chop version and you can see them here.http://foodiewife-kitchen.blogspot.com/2013/03/mustard-maple-glazed-pork-chops.html
Today, I need to get busy packing and doing last minute chores, as Craig and I are flying to Bozeman, Montana to spend eight days exploring Yellowstone National Park, and the Grand Tetons. I have a busy day ahead of me, so I'm staying off Pinterest! I don't need a time-drain! I might post more recipes, if I can. If I don't, it means we are too busy exploring the beauty of Montana and Wyoming!
