Man Pleasing Chicken {{Secret Recipe Club}}

Happy Monday Folks! :)
It's time for another fun installment of the Secret Recipe Club!
This month, I was assigned a super amazingly beautiful blog. Debby from A Feast for the Eyes describes her page as " Take one recipe blog, and add a passion for cooking a garnish of beginning gardening and a dash of travel". Seriously, her page is full of so many wonderful recipes! Her recipes are organized so wonderfully!
I had a hard time deciding what to make. She has great choices such as Cinnamon Raisin English MuffinsCrispy Fish Tacos, and Pan Seared Scallops and Pasta!


I chose to make the recipe on her blog for "Man Pleasing Chicken" She touts that it applies to Moms, Women, and Wives as well :)



Ingredients:
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed well (mine had 8 pieces)
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tbs rice vinegar





Preheat oven to 450. Line 9x13 baking dish with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Lightly salt and pepper chicken and place in baking dish. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl and pour over the chicken, coating well. Bake for 30-40  minutes, until cooked through, basting the chicken in the sauce about 1/2 way through. Sprinkle with your choice of herbs. I used Dried Thyme

Serve and Enjoy. This was indeed Man Pleasing Chicken :) Ed intentionally didn't eat as much as he wanted to so he could save some to take to work with him for dinner a few nights this week! I also thought it was good and I will try making it again. I think I will add some garlic to it, to increase the savory spice a bit, and I was to try it with Chicken Breast instead of thighs to cut the Points down some. It was really really yummy and super moist. I know my BFF Lorin would LOVE this :)



the Points Plus Breakdown for this recipe is as follows:
Serves 8 @ 8 PPV
Serves 6 @ 11 PPV
Serves 4 @ 16 PPV

Some of the fat cooks out of the chicken but I don't feel comfortable adjusting the points based on that :) have yourself some zero point veggies and call it a night :)

  4. Very nice blog. I am following you now. Please drop by to Carole's Chatter and check it out. You might like my Food on Friday series which focuses on a different ingredient. Last week it was Berries and Currants. This week it is pork. If you like my blog it would be great if you followed me back. Have a good week.

  7. Looks excellent, however, I'd have to change the name of the dish. It wouldn't fly in my house :-)
