Maple Glazed Chicken with Bacon & Kale

Maple Glazed Chicken with Bacon & Kale

5 1

We’ve used some wonderful ingredients and techniques to pack lots of flavor into this quick skillet meal.  Browning the chicken in bacon drippings adds a smoky richness, cooking the flour and onion adds caramelized notes, stirring the brown bits into the liquid captures all of the wonderful flavor at the bottom of the pan.  Reducing the liquid concentrates the flavor further, so be sure not to rush this step.  Savory thyme and bacon contrast the sweet maple syrup resulting in a perfectly balanced flavor combination.

    Family favorite!

    I made this for my husband and kids to use up some fresh garden kale. All of them really enjoyed the flavor. It's an easy recipe to make and it makes enough sauce to put on your chicken as well as rice or mashed potatoes. It's definitely going into my rotation!
