  • 2 pounds chicken breast (or thighs, or tenders)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (agave or honey a fine swap)
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon caper brine
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (apple cider preferred, but use what you have)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Combine all non-chicken ingredients. Reserve a few tablespoons of the marinade, then mix in rest with chicken to marinade. 4 hours good. Overnight best.
  • Once marinaded, cook chicken via your favorite method; I prefer grilling over medium heat, ~10 minutes until 165 deg F. Serve alongside unused marinade for dipping.
