Maple Thyme Baked Chicken

Maple Thyme Baked Chicken

Maple syrup and balsamic vinegar help this chicken to brown beautifully as it bakes in the oven. The addition of thyme creates a savoury flavour trio you’ll want to try in other dishes.

Ingredients

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 4 bone-in, skinless chicken legs
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) pepper
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) salt
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) thyme, fresh
  • or
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) thyme, dried
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (200 ºC). Remove skin from the chicken. Rub salt and pepper all over the chicken and set it in a baking dish.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup with the vinegar, thyme and cayenne. Pour the mixture evenly over the chicken.

  3. Roast the chicken for 50-60 minutes or until brown and internal temperature reads 180°F (82°C). Baste the chicken 3-4 times with pan juices during cooking to glaze pieces. If the pan juices start to burn, add a little more water.

  4. Reserve the pan juices to serve on the chicken.

For a complete meal, serve with roasted potato wedges and green beans.
