mangia mondays 74: maple dijon chicken

hello friends!
welcome to another edition of
a blog hop i co-host each week with the lovely
lisa from shine your light.

i'm back!
remember how i said i was going to
write a lovely little update post on miss charlotte?
it's still in the works...
for shame!
i'm trying to write out her birth story,
plus all of the wonderful little things
that have been going on for {almost) the past 2 months.

iiiiiinnnnnn the mean time,
i've finally been able to get back in the kitchen -
thank goodness, i've missed it so!

this week i'm sharing
maple dijon chicken

1/2 C dijon mustard
1/4 C pure maple syrup
{not that pancake syrup... the real deal!}
1 TBS red wine vinegar
chicken, skin on
{use your favorite parts!}
potatoes & onions, sliced

1. preheat oven to 375 f.

2. in a bowl, combine mustard, syrup, & vinegar. set aside.

3. pat the chicken dry & sprinkle with salt, pepper & cayenne. place the potatoes & onions in the bottom of a roasting pan. put a cooling rack on top of the potatoes & onions, then place the chicken pieces on top. brush each piece of chicken with some of the mustard mixture... be liberal, this stuff tastes good!
{reserve some of the sauce to pour over the chicken when serving!}

4. bake for 45-60 minutes, or until golden brown, crispy, & the temp reads 165 f on a thermometer.

how easy is that?
it was also SUPER delicious.
