Maple-Glazed Chicken Breasts
Everyone likes to grill this time of year, so we're showing you how to make a delicious grilled chicken recipe using Smart Chicken™.
Active time: 20 minutes
Total time: 2 hours 20 minutes (including 2 hours marinating time)
2 tbsp Grand Selections pure maple syrup
1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1/4 tsp Hy-Vee fresh ground pepper
2 Smart Chicken™ boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8 ounces)
1. Whisk syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and pepper in a small, shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat with the marinade; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once.
2. Coat an indoor grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserving the marinade) and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165 degrees, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
3. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until reduced by about half, about 4 minutes. Liberally baste the chicken with the reduced sauce and serve.
Tip: Wrap and freeze the chicken tenders. When you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry – they are the perfect size.
