Servings 8 servings
- 2 pounds boneless and skinless chicken breasts halves
- 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 from the skillet.
Lower the heat to medium-low and add the garlic. Cook for about a minute stirring constantly. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to remove any brown bits. Keep boiling the broth for about 2 minutes or until the broth has reduced by half.
Add the maple syrup mixture and mix well. 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).
