Sweet yet slightly savoury, you'll love our baked chicken with maple-infused onion sauce -- a perfect Canadian dish!

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

pinch, or to taste

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), four 4-oz pieces

maple syrup

¼ cup(s)

dried thyme

½ tsp

ground sage

¼ tsp

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, thinly sliced

fat free chicken broth

¾ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).
  2. Stir together flour, salt and pepper. Dust chicken with flour mixture, patting off excess.
  3. Coat a large nonstick, ovenproof frying pan with cooking spray. Add chicken and brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Stir together maple syrup, thyme and sage and pour over chicken. Lay onions over chicken and then pour chicken broth over all. Cover and bake 1 hour, basting occasionally with pan sauce. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 3 tablespoons of sauce per serving.
