This recipe is one of my favorite dishes. Maple is a flavor that is synonymous with fall if you ask me, so this Maple Dijon Chicken starts making a regular appearance on my meal plan this time of year.
It’s great because there is very little prep work. You can even get it ready in advance and just bake it when you are ready to eat.
Ingredients and substitutions
One of the greatest things about this recipe is that the ingredients are all pretty common and easy to find. On top of that, there is a lot of room to make changes in order to suit your preferences or your pantry 🙂
The chicken breast can be substituted with pork chops or tenderloin, boneless skinless chicken thighs, or even salmon. Of course you will need to adjust the cooking time depending upon which protein you are using.
The mayonnaise can be omitted completely, although if you are using a lean cut of meat (such as the chicken breast, or even pork chops, then I highly recommend using it. It helps to keep the meat from drying
You can substitute the Dijon mustard for pretty much any mustard you like or have on hand, although the Dijon goes so well with the maple that I only substitute if I’ve run out.
For the maple syrup, I am in love with Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup. Not only does it taste amazing, but it has the cleanest ingredient list of any sugar free syrup. However, you can use any sugar free syrup you like. If you are opposed to sugar free syrups, you can substitute some maple extract and liquid stevia (or any sweetener you like).
The red wine vinegar can be swapped for apple cider vinegar. In fact, the only ingredient that can’t be omitted or easily swapped is the fresh rosemary. Sure you can use dried, but it’s just not as good. The rosemary adds so much to this recipe that you just have to use it, trust me on this one 🙂
Before I give you the recipe, I also have to tell you about the Brussels sprouts in the photo. They are amazing, and so stinking easy to make. I use precooked bacon crumbles to season them and they go so great with this recipe. I mean is there any greater flavor combo then maple and bacon?? I think not!
I haven’t had time to make a blog post with the Brussels sprouts recipe just yet, but I did share it in a post on my IG and I am linking it below so be sure to check it out, and of course you will want to follow me on IG while you are there!
