  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Whisk together dijon mustard, maple syrup, lemon juice, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  3. Place chicken breasts on a steady surface between two sheets of parchment or plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound each to an even thickness of 1”. Season chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Place chicken inside a 9x13” baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chicken and cook until the chicken is nearly finished cooking through, to 160ºF, about 30-35 minutes.
  5. Remove the chicken from the oven and loosely cover the chicken with aluminum foil to let it rest for 5-10 minutes while it finishes cooking.
  6. Slice and serve with your favorite sides.
