Maple-Glazed Chicken Breasts with Mustard Jus


A must-try for tonight's dinner! Perfectly balanced flavors from this dish pair wonderfully with the Pinot Noir from your recent Wine Club deliver.

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes


• 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
• 1 cup fresh bread crumbs
• 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
• Salt and freshly ground pepper
• 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
• Four 6-ounce boneless chicken breast halves, with skin
• 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
• 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
• 1/2 cup chicken stock
• 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 450°. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt the butter. Stir in the bread crumbs and cook over moderate heat until golden. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and let cool. Wipe out the skillet.

Step 2:
Add the olive oil to the skillet and heat until shimmering. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add it to the skillet, skin side down. Cook over moderately high heat until the skin is browned, 3 minutes. Flip the chicken and roast in the oven for 7 minutes, until just cooked through.

Step 3:
Return the skillet to the burner. Add the syrup and vinegar; bring to a boil. Turn the chicken skin side down and cook until richly glazed, about 30 seconds; transfer to plates skin side up. Add the stock to the skillet and boil until reduced by one-third, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Stir in the mustard and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the chicken. Top with the bread crumbs and serve.
