Recipe of the Month-September

 

Maple Orange Chicken Breasts  
When using maple syrup with main dishes, or meat dishes. I think of the cooking basic hot, sour, salty, sweet combination that creates those really awesome flavors in your mouth.  Maple adds a great dimension to the sweet element. Enjoy    

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup 
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade, or orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, halved
  • 1 Tbs. minced chive.

 

Method

In large bowl combine Maple Syrup, orange juice or marmalade, mustard, oil, garlic, Worcestershire, and pepper. Add chicken and marinate up to 12 hours, turning occasionally. 

In shallow roasting pan, broil breasts 5-6" from heat for 6-7 minutes.  Turn, baste, and broil another 4 minutes. Or you can do the same on a grill. Sprinkle with chive and broil 3 minutes more, or until fully cooked.
