Maple-Glazed Chicken Breasts

Maple-Glazed Chicken Breasts (Adapted from Eating Well)

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (Mine were about 4 ounces each)
2 teaspoons olive oil

In a shallow dish, whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and pepper. Place the chicken in the dish and turn to coat with the marinade - cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once or twice.

Brush a grill pan with the oil and and heat over medium. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserving the marinade) and cook until done, about 3-5 minutes per side depending on size and thickness of the chicken.

Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Let the mixture cook until it reduces by half, about 4 minutes. Generously baste the cooked chicken with the reduced sauce before serving.

Makes 2 servings.
