new obsession: maple-mustard glaze (or sauce)

best way to switch up your standard pork chop or chicken breast?

....maple and mustard sauce!!

WHOLE GRAIN mustard, that is.

last night we baked bone-in chicken breasts (only $1.49/pound!!) rubbed in chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, olive oil, and salt, then topped with the maple-mustard sauce after slicing and serving the chicken.

it's sweet, it's a tiny-bit tangy (not like regular mustard though, since it's whole grain and basically just seeds and juice).

Maple-Mustard Sauce/Glaze

2 parts real maple syrup
1 part whole-grain mustard

Glaze: Mix together and brush or drizzle on baked pork chops or baked chicken breast about 10 minutes before finished baking
Sauce: Mix together and drizzle over served meat (and, if you're like me, keep some nearby in a small dish to dip each bite into the sauce!)

what's your favorite pork chop or chicken breast topping? i'd love to hear from you!
