Maple Dijon Chicken

Serves 8 servings

2 chickens, cut in 1/8’s
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
2/3 cup orange juice
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard (for Passover use 2 tablespoons Passover mustard)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme or rosemary

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place chickens in two low-sided roasting pans. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan, whisk together maple syrup, orange juice, mustard, oil, and thyme or rosemary. Simmer over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour evenly over chicken.

Roast chicken, basting occasionally, for about 50 minutes or until juices run clear, or an internal thermometer registers 170 degrees.

Serve with pan juices.

One thought on “Maple Dijon Chicken

  1. This recipe was amazing! My family ate it up, and they are picky eaters.

    When I made the sauce, I kept waiting for it to thicken up, but it wasn’t happening, so I added flour the first time I made the recipe and matzo cake meal the second time, and that did the trick.

    Thank you so much!
