The Mom Chef: Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time is one of my favorite blogs.  Christiane tests out recipes from current magazines and gives us the unvarnished truth about the results.  Cooking Light is one of the few cooking magazines I don’t subscribe to, but after trying a few recipes that Christiane has shared, that may soon change.  The sweetness from the maple syrup combined with the acidity of cider vinegar make this an irresistible dish…and will stay on our meal rotation.
The original recipe calls for boneless/skinless chicken, but I used the more flavorful bone in breasts. If you are watching calories, use the boneless breasts…and you can also reduce the sauce by half.  Thanks, Mom Chef, for the delicious inspiration.

  1. I am sure this are delicious! I could just imagine the taste of that maple glaze, it must be lovely!

  2. I love her blog and cooking light – and this recipe sounds right up my alley! I love maple and mustard together. I must try this soon 🙂

  3. This sounds like a wonderful flavor combo! I love maple syrup and it’s nice to use it in a savory dish occasionally.

    I used to subscribe to Cooking Light and I enjoyed it. It’s not extreme (like fat-free, sugar-free everything), more like eating a little lighter and more healthy.

  4. What delightful flavors for a chicken dish…my family would love it 🙂

  5. I am always looking for new chicken recipes and this looks wonderful with the maple syrup and cider vinegar combination.

  6. I appreciate a recipe using maple syrup because other than pancakes or waffles, we never use it. It looks simple and easy to cook. Saving for week day dinner!

  7. Thanks so much for taking part in our campaign to end child hunger. Your recipe is v.much appreciated! Rosie, Save the Children

  8. Hi, you will have seen that the new Food on Friday ingredient is chicken. I noticed that you did this post on chicken which I think would be great linked in. We already have a collection of over 40 recipes which is wonderful. At the moment the Food on Friday edition with the most links is Beef with 73 – I get the feeling though that Chicken could become the new record holder!
    Have a great day and thank you for following Carole’s Chatter. It ‘s nice to have you along for my blogging journey.

  9. Thanks for linking in, Lizzy.
    Have a super week.
