How to make Maple Glazed Chicken
Step 1: in half lengthwise, slice the chicken breasts to about the 1-inch thickness and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts to the pan once the oil is hot and sear for about 4 minutes on each side or until completely cooked and the juices run clear. Set the chicken aside when done.
Step 3: To the same pan, add the rest of the olive oil along with the maple syrup, lemon juice, cornstarch, garlic, ground ginger, and water. Stir well until the cornstarch has dissolved and everything is mixed. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the sauce has slightly thickened.
Step 4: Add the chicken back to the pan and toss to coat in the sauce. Take the pan off the heat and serve the maple glazed chicken right away. Enjoy!
I suggest weighing the chicken or using 2 large chicken breasts and slicing them in half to make 4 servings. Make sure you sliced the chicken to about 1-inch or a little less in thickness.
Feel free to swap the lemon juice with apple cider vinegar.
If you prefer more sauce, simply double the sauce ingredients.
