Man-Pleasing chicken

I was looking for an easy recipe to make for lunch today and decided to give this recipe I found on Pinterest a try. Only 4 ingredients (including the chicken thighs) how easy is that!!! I used Aunt Jamima's syrup but would recommend using a better maple syrup as the sauce (still tasty!) has a weird texture, not really "saucy" like it should be. I also doubled the recipe as I needed to make 12 thighs.

Here is the recipe from Witty in the City blog

Preheat your oven to 450ºF.

Then, mix together:
1/2 cup of dijon mustard
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

Put a 1.5 pounds (about 6) chicken thighs into an oven-proof baking dish. salt and pepper the thighs. Pour your maple mustard mixture over them, turning the thighs in the mixture so they are fully coated.
Put the chicken thighs into the oven, and let them bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 155ºF. Baste the tops of the chicken with more sauce half way through.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Plate the chicken, making sure to spoon some extra sauce over the top. Sprinkle over some fresh rosemary.
