Grilled Maple Chicken Breasts

Sweet marinade for chicken. It went well with the black bean sweet potato dip I made the other night. I have a feeling this would make really good chicken salad if you used cranberries and pecans (note to self: make chicken salad with cranberries and pecans)

3/4 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon dried onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

6 chicken breasts (they can be with or without skin)

Whisk the ingredients together.

cooking is not hard.

Put chicken in a pan, pour marinade over chicken.

Let it marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Turn chicken several times.

Just before grilling, remove chicken from pan. Pour marinade in a pan, bring to a boil. Baste chicken with marinade while grilling.

Grill over medium heat until tender.


Recipe is originally from my uber hippy cookbook Simply in Season.
