Sweet Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs

There’s something amazing when you include maple syrup in a marinade. I make Thanksgiving turkey with a brine that includes some syrup and other flavorings. This chicken recipe is very different and very tasty. Give it a try next time you decide on chicken for dinner. The original recipe did not include honey, I tasted the marinade, and thought it needed to be sweeter. So I decided to add a glob of honey. Brown sugar or more maple syrup may have worked as well.

Indirect grilling, 350 F / 177 C to 400 F / 204 C

1/2 cup Dijon mustard (I used ball park yellow mustard since it was all I had in the fridge)

1/4 cup maple syrup

A dollop of honey (adjust to taste)

2 Tbs white vinegar

2 Tbs soy sauce (low sodium)

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper (adjust to taste)

1/8 tsp sea salt (adjust to taste)

Pack of thighs or your favorite parts

Whisk all marinade ingredients. Place chicken parts in a gallon size zip-top bag, and marinate at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.  I know. It's a creepy color. But tasty.

Set up the grill for indirect grilling and preheat to 350 to 400 degrees F.

Place the chicken parts bone side down, and cover your cooker.

#1 OK @Lisa Gallagher -- you got my attention on your very strange marinade -- please share!

#2 Tony - thanks for reading and commenting. I agree, true maple syrup is the way to go. The picture shows my bottle of Log Cabin, however. I used to live in Connecticut and tasted the real stuff from Vermont and other New England states - they definitely are better.

Share some of your recipies!

#1 Lisa - Thanks for your comment. I have a sister who likes everything burnt. (Blackened?)

It may have been the sugar in your marinade. Do you grill indirectly when cooking chicken? That may help.

Maple syrup is so expensive here in Shanghai that it is one the only a handful of items on supermarket shelves that are on display in locked cabinets, or when the bottles have a small handled, they are chained to the shelves under padlock.
