“World’s Best Chicken??”

Worlds

“World’s Best Chicken recipe.”  Hmm….well.

I have seen this post all over Pinterest for the “World’s Best Chicken.”  I pinned it months ago, and finally got around to making it for my own little family.  I was skeptical to begin with as I don’t really care for my savory foods to be sweet, but my husband is a fan, especially of sweet and savory, as well as mustard (well, condiments in general).  I also was intrigued by the simplicity of the dish as well as the few ingredients it called for.

Maybe it was a Pinterest flop, or because I used generic Dijon Mustard…whatever it was, I just didn’t really care for it.  Has anyone else tried this recipe and loved it?  My husband didn’t care for it much either.  Maybe I need to try it again and use chicken tenders or thighs instead of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, so it has more flavor?  Season chicken with other herbs before pouring on sauce??  Anyone?  Or maybe I just didn’t care for it, and there may be others out there who really do feel that it IS the “World’s Best Chicken.”

YOU be the judge!

Serves 4 for about $1.00/serving

INGREDIENTS:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – $3-4

Place chicken breasts into 9×13 greased baking dish. Season with salt & lots of pepper. Pour mustard mixture over chicken.

Bake uncovered for about 30-40 minutes.

Season with chopped rosemary.

Mine doesn’t look anything like the pictures from the original recipe.  It created a coating of sorts, rather than marinating into the chicken…maybe due to the generic mustard??

ENJOY…at least let me know if YOU did!!

  1. Hmmm… I don’t like maple syrup, Dijon mustard, or rosemary so I don’t see this one in my future. 🙂

    I don’t think using generic mustard would matter. Her sauce looks thinner than yours, though. Which makes no sense since you used the same stuff.

    Oh, well, what’s a flop or two between friends? 😉

  2. Thanks Jackie…sometimes Pinterest doesn’t always have tried and true recipes, that actually work when I make them. This is the first one I blogged about though, as I have seen so many rave reviews for it, thought I would give it a shot. Not too pleased, but had to try it. 🙂 !

  3. Maybe it was the pancake syrup you used, maybe you need real maple syrup? I know my kids wouldn’t like the Dijon so I will pass…

  4. from what i’ve read it needs to be pure maple syrup – not “maple syrup”
