PaleOMG is quickly becoming my favorite recipe site! I love that Juli’s recipes are super flavorful and unique, so please check her out at PaleOMG! I told Brandon I didn’t want him following her cooking videos though (she is a super hot CrossFitter!), lol!
This recipe came from her and got rave reviews from the family, especially Brandon (who is not a huge chicken fan)! I chose it because it has common ingredients and looked easy to prepare, and indeed it was.

Maple Mustard Chicken
Here’s Juli’s recipe…
- 1/3 cup ground mustard (no sugar added) * For clarification, this is stone ground mustard from a squeeze bottle.
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
- 2 tablespoons yellow mustard *I didn’t have this, so I used deli mustard
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons coconut aminos (or you can use a wheat free soy sauce) *I used Tamari
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 6-8 chicken breasts or thighs * I used chicken breasts
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon fat (olive oil, coconut oil, lard, etc.)
- Combine the first 7 ingredients in small bowl. Add half of the mixture in a zip-lock bag and reserve the remaining mixture. Add the chicken to the bag and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours, or longer. The more the chicken sits, the more the flavors will mix together and taste even better!
- Preheat grill or a large skillet on medium-high heat and add a tablespoon or so of fat.
- Remove chicken from the baggy. Add a bit of sea salt on the chicken, and place the chicken on the grill or in the skillet to cook. The chicken will need cook for about 8-10 minutes on both sides or until done. If you are cooking in a skillet and want the chicken to cook a bit quicker, add a bit of water and cover to let the steaming begin.
- Serve the chicken on top of any sort of veggies you like and top with reserved mustard mixture. I used a mixture of zucchini noodles (zucchini sliced thin with a mandoline) and some broccoli, which I sautéed up with the chicken when it was almost done cooking!
