Maple Dinner Recipes

Chicken Breasts With Soy Maple Glaze

4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups Pure NYS Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Lite Soy
1 cup Water
1/4 cup NYS Granulated Maple Sugar
2 in. piece Fresh Ginger, sliced
3 whole cloves Garlic
4 stars Star Anise
2 tbsp. Whole Coriander

Add all ingredients to sauce pan and simmer 20 minutes. Strain through fine mesh sieve. Pan sear 4 boneless chicken breasts (a 1-1/2 lb. pork tenderloin or 24 large sea scallops). Preheat oven to 325° F. Place seared breasts in shallow baking pan and pour glaze on top, basting with every five minutes or until done. Serve with fresh roasted brussel sprouts and steamed basmati rice or couscous.

As an alternative, try reducing the strained glaze by 1/2 and use it as a sauce to drizzle over grilled salmon or boneless pork chops. Yield: 4 Servings
