Ingredients

cost per recipe: $10.12

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 shallot, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth or Chicken Stock
  • 1/3 cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 15 minutes or until well browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Add the shallots and garlic to the skillet and cook until they're tender, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Stir the broth, syrup, mustard and red pepper in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the broth mixture is slightly thickened and reduced to about 1 cup. Serve with the chicken.

    My kids and husband said that maple flavored syrup with whatever is in it was weird combination but they liked it. I didnt really enjoy it but I'll definitely make it again for my family.
