  • 2 pounds skinless and boneless cut in half lengthwise
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup I use Crown Maple syrup)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper optional
  • Chopped parsley for garnish optional


  • Pat the chicken dry and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breast and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove chicken from the skillet.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and add the garlic. Cook for about a minute stirring constantly. Add the broth and scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to remove any brown bits. Bring to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes or until the broth has reduced by half.
  • Stir in the maple syrup mixture and mix to combine. Return the chicken to the skillet and turn to coat. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is well coated and the mixture looks syrupy. Remove from the heat and serve. Garnish with chopped parsley (optional).



  • Pan dry the chicken to get a nice golden brown sear.
