Maple Baked Chicken


There’s something about maple that just means winter.    Sometimes it seems we are so busy with shopping and wrapping and baking goodies we forget about dinner during this time of year.  This is a simple recipe with lots of great flavor. . . a perfect winter-night meal.  We like to serve it with roasted red potatoes and fresh green beans.  Take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and fix yourself a yummy dinner- you deserve it




Maple Baked Chicken


4 chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon savory
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon sage
1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix salt and pepper into flour in a shallow bowl or plate.  Dredge the chicken in the flour.  In a skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat.  When it starts to bubble, add the chicken breasts and brown on both sides.  Transfer chicken to baking dish.  In skillet, mix chicken broth, syrup and herbs and pour over chicken breasts.   Arrange onions on top and bake.



Bake, basting the chicken with the pan juices, for about 50 minutes.  Serve with a drizzle of pan juices drizzled over the top and the rest on the side – it’s good on the roasted potatoes.

  1. Wow this sounds amazing. I have an unused container of Maple Garlic powder in my cupboard and I’ll bet I could add a big dash of that to this recipe. I’ve never known what to do with it, but it sounded interesting when I bought it… So does this chicken. Yum!

  5. Savory is an herb – you can find it with the spices at your grocery store. Hope you enjoy the chicken!
