Maple Dijon Chicken

Maple Dijon Chicken

I’ve been wanting to share this recipe forever, but somehow it got put on the back burner. However, my lack of follow-through should not be considered a lack of enthusiasm about this recipe. It’s by far one of the most flavorful chicken recipes I’ve ever made. It’s also one of the easiest.

It comes from Julie over at Table for Two, and there’s a reason she calls it Holy Yum Chicken. It’s just that good. If you have never check out her blog, do it now. I love reading her posts and she has amazing recipes. Anyway, her recipe calls for rosemary and chicken thighs. I’ve tried it that way, and I’ve tried it – out of necessity – with tarragon and boneless, skinless breasts. Both ways were amazing, but I have to say that my favorite combination was rosemary and the breast.
