Yummy Baked Chicken

This maple mustard baked chicken recipe, originally from
is all over pinterest.
Just search for "man pleasing chicken." 

It is aptly named because I liked it,
and my daughter enjoyed it,
but Mr. H. and my son basically licked their plates clean. :-)

Here's what you'll need -

2 large or 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
(original recipe calls for chicken thighs)
1/2 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon corn starch
fresh rosemary

Here's what you do -

Preheat oven to 450.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with two sheets of aluminum foil.
Place chicken on top of foil.
Whisk together mustard, syrup, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Pour over chicken making sure all the chicken is nicely coated.
Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
(If using chicken thighs bake 40 minutes.)
Remove chicken from oven and let sit 5 minutes.
Plate chicken.
 Immediately add corn starch to baking dish and whisk into remaining sauce.
Pour thickened sauce over chicken and sprinkle with rosemary.
