Whisk mustard, maple syrup, 1 tablespoon oil, thyme, pepper and salt in a large bowl.

Pour into a large plastic bag, add chicken, and move them around to coat evenly. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 6 hours.

Very moist and flavorful

Recipe turned out delicious! The chicken was nice and moist, which is always a pleasant surprise when cooking at 8500 ft above sea level. Definitely will make this again

I made this recipe last night. It was easy to make. I had to cook it about 15 min. longer than suggested, but it was done and it was very moist. There wasn't much flavor to it though. As far as making it again - no I wouldn't. I'm not saying it was a bad recipe, but it was not one that I would recommend to anyone. Sorry.

This tasted bland and boring. Also, please cook the chicken for 30-40 min. instead of the 20 it recommends, unless you want to eat raw chicken.

I want to make this recipe but I have 1 enquiry. Is the mustard powder or creamy? Thank you in advance.

I LOVED this recipe! I had to cook it awhile longer because my chicken breasts were bigger but they were still tender regardless and had alot of flavor
