I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Spicy Dijon Maple Chicken
...in your mind.

Spicy Dijon Maple Chicken

I used chicken legs, but feel free to use any kind of chicken you want. And yes, I know chicken is usually cooked to 165, but trust me - 180 is the number for legs. And these go so well with this amazingly good NO MAYO POTATO SALAD


  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 cup Asian chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy paste, or sauce
  • 12 chicken legs, or the equivalent of any other chicken part you want to use
  • Neutral oil
  • Kosher salt & pepper


  1. Heat grill to high, and set up for 2 zone cooking - one side on, and one side off
  2. Put syrup, Dijon, garlic chili sauce and soy in a bowl and mix well to combine - set aside
  3. Rub chicken lightly with oil, and season with the salt & pepper
  4. Spray grill or rub lightly with oil, and put chicken on the ‘not hot’ side, and close the lid
  5. You’re cooking the chicken to approximately 180 degrees, and will take approximately 30ish minutes
  6. Brush the chicken with the sauce often, starting in about the last 10 minutes of cooking
  7. Remove from grill, and give one final brushing before serving
