This healthy Dijon chicken dinner is definitely a winner! For some reason when people think of healthy meals, they think boring, dry, bland. Those people have obviously NEVER explored the world of cooking. There are so many flavorful, delicious healthy meals out there that won't cost you on your hips or in your wallet.

This is one of those meals for sure. The twang of the mustard and red wine vinegar, and the sweetness of the maple syrup is like a party in your mouth. On top of it all, because we are baking it in the oven, there is no extra oils being used and it allows for an extremely moist chicken.
