This recipe was so easy to make and was delicious! All you need is 30 minutes, 1 pan and an appetite. It is a healthy dinner idea and goes perfectly paired with brown rice, quinoa or steamed green veges for a low carb option.

Serves: 4
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4-6 chicken thighs
  • ⅓ cup dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • optional: Thyme for garnishing
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Grease a large skillet and cook chicken 5-8 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together mustard, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add to the pan (same pan you cooked the chicken in, no need to clean it out first) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, add chicken, and toss chicken in the sauce to coat well.
  3. Garnish with thyme if desired and serve immediately.
