Maple Glazed Chicken Thighs

I received this recipe, along with the complimentary side of Sweet Potato Fries from the Paleo Challenge sample from emeals. Both were delicious! My son said, "Please make this again but next time make more!"

6 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs

Combine syrup, juice, oil, salt, and pepper in covered dish. Add chicken and marinate for one hour.
Transfer chicken to a roasting rack on a baking dish, set marinade aside.
Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
Meanwhile, bring syrup mixture to a simmer over medium heat; cook one minute. Brush marinade over chicken.
Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until done.
Remove from oven; let stand ten minutes before serving.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
