Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

If you don’t have chicken breasts, use chicken thighs or even pork – all pair perfectly with this sweet yet tangy sauce.  Serve with rice and green beans.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the oil and swirl to coat.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken to the pan and saute 2 minutes on each side or until browned.  Remove the chicken from the pan.
  • Add the broth, maple syrup, thyme and garlic to the pan; bring to a boil and scrap the bottom to remove the browned bits.
  • Cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the vinegar and mustard; cook for 1 minutes stirring constantly.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and spoon the mustard mixture over the chicken.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Place the pan over medium heat; cook the mustard mixture for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Serve the chicken with the maple-mustard glaze.
