Prep Time: 48 minutes
Cook Time: 17 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 10


  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup I prefer the real stuff. You can find Grade A or B in your local grocery stores, especially health food stores
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 10 Chicken thighs Skinless
  • Sea Salt and Fresh Black Pepper


  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, maple syrup and rice vinegar.
  • Whisk until completely smooth and well incorporated.
  • In a baking dish, lay the chicken thighs in and sprinkle evenly with sea salt and fresh black pepper.
  • Turn the thighs over and repeat on the remaining side.
  • Pour about 2/3 of the sauce over the chicken, tossing to coat well, and set aside the remaining sauce for grilling.
  • Cover the chicken dish with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 30min.
  • Remove the meat from the fridge and let rest on the counter for 5-8 minutes. (It is always best to cook meat that is not straight out of the fridge.)
  • Heat your grill to medium high heat and place the thighs on the grill.
  • Grill for 4-6 minutes per side (depending on the size of the thigh)
  • Flip the chicken and baste with the sauce.
  • Continue to cook through, 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove from the grill and tent with foil.
  • Let rest for 2-3 minutes and then serve!
