Man Pleasing Chicken

One thing I really like about face book groups is that if you join a few recipe groups you get a wide variety of recipes at your finger tips each day. Sometimes you get many people that re post the same ones. Those usually stick in my mind and I usually try them if they look pretty good. Well this one was posted from Easy Recipes, Healthy Eating.
We eat a lot of chicken and from time to time it gets pretty boring. My son and DH loves mustard so I thought I would try this one. It was simple to make which is even better on days like this. Man Pleasing Chicken is the proper name for this one. It was very good and everyone liked it at this house. 

1-1/2 pound package of boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
fresh rosemary
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Then mix together Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and rice wine vinegar.

Line a 9x13 baking dish with foil. Arrange chicken, salt and pepper chicken on both sides. Pour half of the mustard mixture over chicken, flip chicken several times to coat chicken. 

Put the chicken in the oven, and let bake for 40 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Baste the top of the chicken with the remaining of the mustard mixture half way through the cooking process. Use a meat thermometer to check doneness of chicken.Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Plate chicken and spoon some of the extra sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary if desired.
