Mr. Mother Thyme and I have been making this for years. We absolutely love it.
This recipe is really about the marinade. Once you make it, you will want to use it on all types of meats. Even though this recipe calls for chicken thighs, I have used this same marinade for chicken breasts on the grill, a whole chicken roast and even pork chops, pork tenderloin and salmon too.
It is so good!
The marinade comes together with a few simple ingredients. Pure maple syrup, dijon mustard, yellow mustard, olive oil and fresh rosemary. That’s it. They blend together in perfect harmony.
On busy nights, I’ll whip this marinade together, toss with the chicken and roast in the oven. When I grill it, I like to use it more as a glaze. If you want to try this on the grill, season chicken with salt and pepper and place the chicken in a resealable bag. Pour half the marinade in the bag, seal and toss the chicken. I like to let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or even a few hours.
Once you are ready to grill, place the chicken on a preheated grill, discarding the bag. As the chicken cooks on the grill, use a brush to glaze the reserved marinade on the chicken. Once it’s done, arrange on a plate, garnish with a little more fresh rosemary and serve. It’s so yummy!
