Maple Chicken

This is a super simple recipe I just whipped up for Michael. If I know I am not going to have a lot of time one evening to cook, I love setting up something in a marinade the night before so all I have to do is cook. I am a big fan of the foodsaver but you could just use a gallon size bag to marinade. I doubled the recipe as usual, but wrote it for 4 servings. Michael really enjoyed the flavor of this chicken dish!

Maple Chicken
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoon tamari, nama-shoyu or soy sauce
juice from 2 lemons
2 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoon ginger, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  1. In a large plastic bag pour all ingredients except the chicken and mix. Add chicken and marinate from 2 hours to overnight.
  2. Heat a grill pan or skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray. remove chicken from the marinde (reserve) and grill chicken untikl cooked through on both sides, flipping once.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Pour over cooked chicken and serve.
