Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450°F.

Mix together dijon mustard, maple syrup, and rice/rice wine vinegar.

Salt and pepper the thighs and place in an 8x8-inch baking dish. Pour your maple mustard mixture over them, turning the thighs in the mixture so they are fully coated.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted reads 165°F. Add a little parmesan cheese & broil the chicken for a few minutes prior to removing from the oven.
