Enjoy this crunchy chicken at home for a family supper or take it along on a picnic to eat cold—no forks and knives required! For best flavor, shop for locally raised natural chicken and grade B maple syrup.

"I loved how flavorful the chicken turned out. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs and marinated the poultry for 5 hours. It turned out very moist and flavorful. Even on the second day of leftovers it wasn't disappointing...

This was a great recipe! Some notes,
-Not a fan of maple, so I made it with honey.
-I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
-I only had time to marinate it for about an hour, and I think it would benefit from a longer marinating time.
-I think people who want a break from food that tastes diet-y will love this!

Also used honey with boneless chicken thighs. Very moist and flavorful. Excellent!


love love love. Would totally make again with no changes at all. I used legs because, besides being my favorite, they almost always come out beautiful and moist. I would try this with a thigh in a heartbeat. The additional salt (I used kosher salt) was fine and didn't make the chicken overly salty. Chicken itself was fantastic and moist. The technique of using the rack is key and I'm convinced was the reason the chicken was crispy and not soggy on one side. Totally going to use that technique when making other crispy recipes.


My husband loved this chicken I will definitely make this again and again. I used molasses instead of maple syrup because thats all I had. I marinated bone in chicken breast with the skin removed for about 4 hours. I thought that the chicken was overly dredged and dry on the top but I put dijon mustard on the side to dip into and it was perfect. Very juicy and full of flavor. I also made the baked mac and cheese to go with it. Delish!


So tasty. I didn't add any salt to mine, because I thought the mustard was enough. I will definately make this again.


Definatly a keeper! Me and my hubby loved this recipe and it is so easy to make. I used chicken breast intead of drumsticks and it was great. Will make time and time again!
