Perfectly tender, tasty and juicy, this Maple Balsamic Glazed chicken is quick and easy to make and is so versatile, it would be just as fantastic served as a weeknight dinner as it would be on special occasions
In a large mixing bowl or glass measuring cup, combine all the ingredients for the marinade and whisk until well combined.
Place the pieces of chicken in a baking dish that's just big enough to accommodate them and then pour the marinade right over them. Toss delicately with your fingers until all the pieces of chicken are well surrounded in the marinade, then cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 6 hours, but preferably overnight.
When you are ready to cook your meat, heat a few tablespoons of healthy cooking oil in a large, heavy skillet set over medium-high heat.
Once the pan is hot enough, remove the chicken from the marinade and wipe off excess marinade; place the chicken nice looking side down in the pan and sear it until nice and golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.
Flip the pieces of chicken over and let them cook for about 2 minutes, then pour the marinade over the meat and simmer for about 10 minutes, regularly spooning some of that marinade over the chicken to give it a nice glaze.
Kill the heat and allow rest for 3 to 5 minutes and serve with the maple balsamic sauce.
