My parents always send us cans of real maple syrup, as a gift, in March. Our supply usually last one year. This recipe took me 2 minutes to prepare. Then it goes in the oven for 30 minutes. While it is cooking you can prepare some brown rice and vegetables, as side dishes. A nice green vegetable, like asparagus, will add color to your plate. You can prepare the recipe the night before and let it marinate, in the refrigerator, for up to 24 hrs.
I will make this recipe again and I might try the sauce with pork chops. When Spring comes do you like to make recipes with maple syrup?
TIP: When the chicken is on special, at your grocery store, double the recipe and you will have leftovers for your lunch. Hot steamed snow peas are also yummy with this chicken.
