Maple and Mustard Glazed Chicken

Maple and Mustard Glazed Chicken


After having made several sweet maple recipes it was time to make a savoury one. I remembered seeing a tasty looking maple and mustard glazed chicken dish on Noble Pig that I had bookmarked to try. Honey and dijon mustard are a classic combination that I really enjoy and I had no doubts that the maple dijon combo would be just as good. Recently I have come to really appreciate mustard and one of the things that I liked about this recipe was that it used a grainy mustard in addition to the Dijon mustard for extra flavour and a nice texture. In this recipe the chicken is breaded and fried until golden brown and crispy and then smothered in the maple and mustard glaze and before it is finished cooking in the oven. For the breading I used a mixture of regular bread crumbs and panko breadcrumbs to add more nooks and crannies for the glaze to stick to. The chicken came out really tender and moist and good! The maple and mustard glaze was great! It was really tasty and it had a great balance between the sweet and spicy elements. The maple really worked well with the mustard and its flavour came through nicely. This recipe is definitely a keeper! I served the maple and mustard glazed chicken with some cheesy broccoli rice and maple and dill carrots.

Donna-FFW said...

Yah! Another fantastic way of using maple. I love them all. This, though, has got to be my most favorite. I so like the fact that it is quick and easy. And undoubtedly delicious!

Christina Kim said...

This looks absolutely scrumptious! I will have to try it out. You are an inspiration!

Hi Kevin

I was wondering did you use fresh bread crumbs or dried bread crumbs. Also did you use grade B Maple Syrup for cooking or grade A Maple Syrup. Thanks.

Heather said...

Next time try it with a little curry. It's not as crazy as it sounds...

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Cheers and have a nice weekend,

Manggy said...

Looks fantastic! Maple is always a win combined with something sweet :)

Emily said...

Oh baby does that chicken look good! Maple and mustard seem like a perfect match.

Love the pic. It looks really delicious! I dont like mustard that much but I'm sure it complemented well with the maple.

Debbie said...

Maple and mustard sound great together. The chicken looks great!

Jeanine said...

You've done some amazing things with maple syrup the last few days, Kevin, but this one looks truly amazing. Well done!

Jan said...

Now I'm loving the idea of maple and mustard! That chicken looks good Kevin!

Kevin said...

Anonymous: I used a combination of dried bread crumbs and panko bread crumbs. I added the panko bread crumbs so that there would be more nooks and cranies for the glaze to stick to. I used Grade B Amber Maple Syrup which I tend to use for cooking.

Kevin said...

Heather: When I made the honey dijon chicken a while ago I used curry and it was really good!

Marie said...

Ohh gosh, Kevin, that is really getting my tastes buds tingling. It looks delicious!!

Bellini Valli said...

This is what I love about food blogs. We find so many tempting recipes.

lisaiscooking said...

Looks delicious, and the grainy mustard sounds like a great addition.

Joanne said...

Maple is good. Especially with butter. I am just a sweet and salty kind of person I guess. This chicken looks great, though, an so simple to make...a perfect weeknight meal.

Foodie with Little Thyme! said...

The glaze looks and sounds very yummy!

Colin's Mom said...

Another delicious dish by Kevin! I have 2 questions for you. 1) What's the side dish in the background of your photo? 2) And speaking of your photo, what type of camera and/o lens do you use for your photos? You take some seriously great photos!!

Marjie said...

I agree that honey and dijon is terrific, and this looks wonderful, as well!

elly said...

This looks incredibly tasty! I like the maple/mustard combo a lot.

Cinnamonda said...

Lo said...

Nice one, Kevin. I'm all about the sweet/spicy, so this sounds great.

Jennifer said...

I'm pretty sure I am making this in the next week.

I make chicken tenders a lot. I think I will do the tenders, and add the glaze to it. So yummy, I can't wait to try it!

Erin said...

Kevin, you've really been publishing like a pro lately! What a delicious but exhausting schedule!!

Question: your photos come out beautifully. Do you use natural lighting or a flash or a lighting setup of some kind? If so, what kind/brand do you use? I'm very envious of the great light quality. I've only been using natural, because my flash quality lighting looks terrible, and the grey chicago winter has not been complying lately.

Culinary Cory said...

I love how I can turn to you for the perfect maple recipe ideas.

Dawn said...

you always have the best combinations. I'm hoping you'll be doing a maple shortbread soon...I love maple anything

Gloria said...

Nice and tasty recipe Kevin!!! and wonderful pic! Gloria

Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer said...

This looks so wonderful and in fact I will make them this weekend!!

Cathy said...

Looks like a great chicken recipe,Kevin. Can't wait to try it.

Kevin said...

Erin: I was having problems with flash as well so I looked into lighting. I ended up getting a Lowel Ego lamp and I have been happy with it since, though, a second one would be nice. :)

Jennifer said...

OH MY!!!!! I love that these are breaded too!! I LOVE maple anything! I must try this!

Judy said...

Looks really delicious.

Helene said...

Kevin, I love your maple theme. Hope it will continue. Beautiful chicken.

Katrina said...

That looks and sounds SOOO good! Great photography, Kevin. I'll bet the taste is even better!

Jan said...

That chicken looks delish, a great recipe from noble pig.

zerrin said...

So appetizing with its red sauce. Looks fantastic!

Pam said...

That is some beautiful color on that chicken!

Julie said...

Wow, I think almost everything to make this dish. Sounds wonderful!

diva said...

mmm that looks delicious. definitely liking the maple on it.

meeso said...

That's some tempting looking chicken, and really, all the sweet flavors, and then the addition of thyme, this has to be bookmarked!

Erin said...

Thanks for the tip on your gear Kevin. I keep hoping I'll come across a magic flash, because with a new baby in the house there really is no room for a food lighting setup sadly. but your photos look gorgeous! the investment is really paying off.

Carolyn Jung said...

What a great weeknight dish. I'll definitely have to bookmark this recipe, especially for those times when I scratch my head over new ways to make chicken exciting.

mona said...

Ah, that looks delish!

megan (brooklyn farmhouse) said...

Wow that looks delicious! Love the sound of that glaze PLUS the breadcrumbs. Yum.

~RED~ said...

Thanks! Your photo caught my eye on photograzer.. being in New Hampshire, i appreciate any good maple recipes, thanks!

Ashe said...

This is awesome! I'm a mustard nut but what really shines through is the fresh thyme. Served it with sweet potatoes for a fairly indulgent weeknight dinner!

The Culinary Sherpas said...

Thanks for this Kevin! I am constantly looking for new chicken ideas (Greg cooks for a weekly client who needs low fat, low sodium)that are different but still healthy. I am leaving out the brown sugar and the frying part for this one. Instead, I'll brown the chix, then dredge it in a little panko, bake it off and then finish with the maple mustard sauce. :)

Jin Hooi said...

Thanks for sharing this recipe kevin, i made this tonight and it was great !!

Roy said...

Hi Kevin. Thanks for the recipe. It looks delicious and I am always looking for new things to do with chicken. I'll be making it for a party this weekend.

I do have a question though. In the recipe under the picture, you say to use 1 teaspoon of chopped thyme. In the printable version, it says 1/2 teaspoon. Which is coorect?

Ingrid said...

Hi, Kevin! I saw this on Jin's blog & gave it a try. We all loved it. I didn't have whole grain mustard so, just subbed spicy....I think it would have been even better with the right one. Thx!

Kevin said...

Roy: 1/2 is correct, though feel free to use more if you like, Thanks for noticing.

Tod said...

Finally made the glaze and it worked wonderfully on a huge rainbow trout filet. Thanks!

jenisnape said...

Thanks for another great recipe! When I can't think of something for dinner, all I need to do is check out your blog :)

Can't wait to try this it looks yummy! I use a similar maple, mustard, brown sugar mixture on bacon wrapped pork tenderloin medallions. I also add a bit of curry to it as well.
