Last week, I was trying to come up with a good chicken dinner that was just a little…different. I was tired of the usual roasted chicken breast with herbs – even when a bit of mustard was added in. After much Googling, I found an maple, apple and onion chicken recipe from the US Kraft website, but knew that I had to modify it to suit my tastes, so I came up with the following Maple Dijon Chicken with Apples and Onions:
Maple Dijon Chicken with Apples and Onions
What you need:
- 2 medium to large chicken breasts (totalling about 450 g)
- 2-3 tablespoons of grainy dijon mustard
- 1/6 cup of maple syrup
- 1/3 cup of chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 cooking apple (I used gala apples), sliced, with skin on
- In a bowl, mix the mustard, maple syrup, chicken stock and balsamic vinegar and marinate the chicken in the liquid for at least an hour in the fridge.
- Place the chicken in a baking pan, leaving the liquid in the bowl and top with the chopped onions
- Pour the remaining liquid over the onions and cuicken
- Set the sliced apples around the chicken and onions
- Place the chicken in the oven and bake at 375 F for 45-50 minutes
The dish above will serve two or three people. Serve with mashed potatoes or a carrot and potato mash.
