Witty In The City’s Chicken Dinner

August 8th, 2012  |  Cluck cluck, Family Dinner  |  0 Comments

Pinterest supplies me with an overload of food porn...every single time I click on it.  I love how all of the beautiful dishes leave me salivating, craving some amazing something that someone's put together; but the truth is, I can count the number of times I've actually made something from a pin on ONE finger (until today)  which seems incredibly odd to me. What's the point of pinning if I'm not ever going to follow through by recreating the deliciousness for myself or my family?  I think I just get overwhelmed by all of the goodness that its hard to pick which one to start with!

I committed myself to try a Pinterest recipe this week and went with this one that the maker described as “So Good it Can’t Be Described, Explosion On Your Taste Buds Chicken.”  This dish truly sounded like I would majorly be missing out if I didn't try it.

While I don't know if I would give the same description above, it was a really good and very easy main course.  Even my 5 year-old ate it for dinner {a monumental feat indeed} and for that I give it a 5-star rating.  Little guy doesn't eat anything I make unless it's packed with sugar or marshmallows.

Thank you Witty in the City for a fabulous family dinner!  What's YOUR favorite food item you've made from Pinterest?  I'd love to know!


1 whole chicken, cut up
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


Preheat oven to 425 degrees on Convection Roast setting, [bake at 450 if your oven does not have that feature].

In a small bowl whisk Dijon, syrup and rice vinegar together; set aside.

Line a 13" x 9" casserole dish with aluminum foil (or you will be scrubbing it for days!). Sprinkle salt and pepper both sides of chicken pieces and arrange them in the casserole dish.

Pour entire bowl of sauce over chicken pieces.

Sprinkle chicken with paprika and bake for about 45 minutes, until a thermometer placed into the thickest part of a breast reaches 165 degrees.

Garnish with chopped fresh rosemary. Enjoy!
