Much like with Angry Chicken, I was compelled to make this dish solely on the name. I mean, come on... I've got a man.... I'm trying to please him..... it appeared to be a no-brainer. It didn't hurt that I was low on supplies and it had only 4 ingredients, all ones that I had.
Scary simple, just mix 3 ingredients together, pour over the chicken and bake.
Abe's reaction? "Um, this chicken IS man-pleasing!" And then proceeded to eat the extra I had made for the following day's lunch.
That's Man for Yummy.
I used bone-in thighs, but you can easily adjust to use boneless or breasts. Just make sure to adjust your time down. Use a meat-thermometer to check your temps.
I got this recipe from a blog called Witty in the City.
1 1/2 pounds of bone-in chicken thighs
1/2 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar (or cider vinegar)
Preheat oven to 450. Place chicken in a baking dish. Combine the mustard, maple syrup and vinegar in a bowl and pour over chicken, flipping chicken to coat.
Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 180 degrees.
Let rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, if you feel so inclined.
