Maple Glazed Chicken

Maple Chicken3

Maple glazed chicken is what’s on the menu for dinner tonight. This recipe popped into my head while I was looking in our refrigerator. I already knew that I was going to cook chicken. I looked at the shelves and found maple syrup. That light bulb in my head turned on again. Since we still had sweet potatoes and broccoli, I decided to use that as my sides for this dish. The sweet potatoes were just mashed and the broccoli was sauteed in olive oil, salt, and pepper. This recipe was definitely a hit in the Powell house. There you have it, my Maple Glazed Chicken!

Ingredients:

  • 4 Pieces of chicken thighs
  • 1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup

Serving size: 2-4 people    Prep time: 1 – 2 hours    Cook time: 35 minutes.

Directions:

In a small mixing bowl, mix olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and paprika for chicken marinade. Place chicken in storage bag, then pour in marinade. Allow chicken to marinade at minimum one hour.

Once chicken is marinaded, line baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Preheat oven to 375° degrees. Place chicken on baking sheet. Bake chicken for thirty minutes. Remove chicken from oven and pour one tablespoon of maple syrup per chicken. Set oven to broil and place chicken in oven for an additional five minutes.
