Maple syrup & flecks of dill lend a sweet, fresh touch to this quick, sauteed chicken dinner Maple syrup & flecks of dill lend a sweet, fresh touch to this quick, sauteed chicken dinner
Number of Servings: 4


    4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    2 tsp (10 mL) butter
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of salt and pepper
    1/2 cup (125 mL) dry white wine or apple juice
    2 tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup
    1/3 cup (75 mL) chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp (5mL) dried dillweed


1. Trim any fat from chicken. Melt butter in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. When bubbly, add chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown, from 2 to 3 minutes per side.

2. Pour wine (apple juice) and maple syrup into pan around chicken. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits from bottom of pan. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue to cook chicken, turning halfway through, until it feels springy when pressed, from 8 to 10 more minutes. Remove chicken to a serving platter. Cover with a tent of foil to keep warm. Stir dill into sauce in pan. Increase heat to medium-high and boil sauce, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly, from 2 to 3 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken and serve immediately. Delicious with green beans and mashed potatoes.

    Very good. I used olive oil instead of butter and apple sauce instead of apple juice. I would prefer apple juice. Everyone loved this! - 2/22/08

    This was REALLY good!! Very different and fresh as my husband put it. I also used olive oil instead of butter as others had suggested. As sides I made oven baked potatoes with different seasonings and peas. Will for sure make this again! - 7/1/15

    I just made this for lunch, fantastic! Indeed, something I'd never have thought of but so simple! I used a decent Bordeaux vin blanc sec. The sauce makes this dish! It's just so good. You are right, I think it would be perfect with mashed potatoes to sop up this delicious sauce. Will make again - 6/17/09

    Amazing! I used olive oil instead of butter, but it was simply delicious. Not a combination I ever would have thought of, but my husband told me tonight it's the best chicken he's ever had. :D - 5/15/09
