Maple-Glazed Chicken with Apples

Submitted by: KEEKBEAN


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 cup apple cider or juice
    1 firm apple, cored and cut into 8 wedges
    1/3 cup maple syrup
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    4 (4oz) think sliced skinless chicken breasts

Tips

Marinate the meat for at least an hour before cooking. I typically like to marinate this overnight and also like to use thighs instead of breasts. Fattier but they absorb the marinade better.


Directions

1. Line the broiler rack with foil; preheat the broiler
2. In a medium nonstick saucepan, mix the apple cider, apple, maple syrup, and thume; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook untilt he apple is tender and the sauce is reduced by half, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
3. Place the chicken on the broiler rack and brush on both sides with half of the maple mixture; broil 4 inches from the heat until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Turn and brush the top with the remaining maple mixture; broil until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes longer. Serve with the apple wedges on the side.

  • I thought this was pretty decent. The apples were really good. The maple mixture was very thin and I would have liked it to be thicker. - 7/23/10
