Maple Mustard Grilled Chicken Thighs

Maple-Mustard Grilled Chicken Thighs

The classic combination of maple and mustard comes together quickly in this weeknight grilled chicken dish. It would work great on bone-in chicken thighs or chicken breasts, if that's what you have on hand. The Frenched chicken thighs we had on hand just make for extra easy eating!

Servings 4


  • 4 Frenched chicken thighs or use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the Traeger grill to 375°.
  • While the grill heats up, prep the chicken by first patting it dry with a paper towel.
  • In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
  • Coat all sides of the chicken with the mustard mixture.
  • Place chicken pieces, skin side up, directly on the grate of your preheated grill and cook with the lid closed for about 20 minutes.
  • Using an instant-read thermometer, check the internal temperature of the thickest part of the meat. Chicken thighs are done when the temperature reads 165°.
  • Serve while hot!
