You can't go wrong with this delicious maple mustard grilled chicken. Enjoy!
Oh, hello. We back. From what seems like the ends of the earth! I've missed you – have you missed us?! When we last posted – over two weeks ago 😰 – we were in Mexico for Food Blog University, a learning experience so amazing that it deserves its own post at a later date.
Over time, I've realized that you wonderful readers comprise an interesting mix of people and you come to The Fitchen for very different reasons. Many of you are vegan, most are vegetarian, most are gluten-free, and many are paleo. Yes, I just said vegan and paleo in the same sentence. *ducks for cover*
But hear me out – I think the reason for this unlikely intersection of dietary preferences/needs actually makes sense here. We focus on making our recipes wholesome, simple, and nutritious and that's where vegans and paleo-dieters can see eye-to-eye, if you ask me. For the most part, both camps make an effort to eat real food without superfluous ingredients and artificial crap. This concludes my lets-all-be-friends soapbox.
When Steve's Paleo Goods sent us a box full of goodies, it was like Christmas came early. Some of the contents such as the addicting dried strawberries and apple granola, were meant for snacking. And some were for cooking. Exhibit A – this bomb maple mustard dressing which is slightly sweet, creamy, and has just the right amount of zing. Cue cooking with it. Or dipping stuff in it. Or drinking it... whatever.
It may be/probably is past grilling season where you're from, but there is an oven-related solution for that in the recipe. We took advantage of the unseasonably warm November weather (mid-70's!!!) this week and pulled out the grill just one more time.
Oftentimes, the trouble with grilling chicken is that it turns out dry. Of course, that never happens when Clark is grilling, though. 😏 BUT – if dry chicken has happened to you/is your worst nightmare, this recipe is the solution. Start out with chicken breast tenders – this is key – and marinate them in this maple mustard sauce – also key – before grilling. What you'll end up with is tender, juicy bites of tangy meat with that dreamy straight-off-the-grill aroma.
Even if you have to forego the grill, the oven will still result in perfect chunks of succulent chicken. You really can't go wrong.

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is sweet potato casserole. Thank you for the giveaway!
Green Bean Casserole is my favorite Thanksgiving dish. This will be my first Paleo Thanksgiving and I can't wait to try new recipes!
I love roasted Brussel sprouts! They have become our thanksgiving tradition!
Favorite part is the stuffing, and pumpkin roll for desert!! :)
My favorite Thanksgiving dish is stuffing because it's the only time of year that I eat it because it's not paleo.
Love making pies!
Turkey it's what's for dinner! Now give me my free stuff!
Stuffing!! I wait all year to have just one day of eating stuffing. It's the best part of Thanksgiving.
I can't grill without it drying out either. My favorite thanksgiving dish is roasted root veggies with slivered almonds!
Bacon Balsamic Brussel Sprouts are my Thanksgiving favorite!
Bacon Balsamic Brussel Sprouts are my Thanksgiving favorite!! Yum!
Stuffing has always been my favorite Thanksgiving dish, and now that I'm vegan I love Gardein's holiday roast too!
I love sweet potatoes and dressing.
I subscribed! I love sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving!
My favorite Thanksgiving food is my grandma's Wild Rice Casserole. It is the only thing I'll eat during the year that isn't pescatarian (it has bacon - shame on me!). I've had it made vegan, but it just doesn't taste the same. My husband and two teenagers eat meat (I cook it for them, although they also have eaten a lot of tofu in their lives)...and they love telling people that I eat bacon (lol). Love your blog!!
Favorite Thanksgiving dish by far is pumpkin pie. I'm all about dessert.
I love thanksgiving stuffing
