Recipe Notes

  • If you like a little heat, feel free to add a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Instead of regular soy sauce, you can use low-sodium soy sauce, gluten-free soy sauce or tamari.
  • If you don't have maple syrup, you can substitute honey.
  • I lined my baking pan with aluminum foil to make cleanup easier.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Place the chicken in a casserole dish or baking pan lined with aluminum foil. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the maple syrup, soy sauce, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the pan, ensuring the chicken is covered in the sauce.
  4. Bake the chicken at 350 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until desired doneness. Chicken is done when it reaches 165 degrees F on a food thermometer.
  5. Remove from oven and serve over rice and/or with your favorite side dishes.
