Ingredients:

  • 2 tblspn pure maple syrup
  • 1 tblspn reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tspn lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tspn minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tspn freshly ground pepper
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 8 ounces), trimmed and tenders removed (see Tip)

Instructions

Here are your instructions:

  1. Whisk syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and pepper in a small, shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat with the marinade; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once.

  2. Coat an indoor grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserving the marinade) and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  3. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until reduced by about half, about 4 minutes. Liberally baste the chicken with the reduced sauce and serve.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Wrap and freeze the chicken tenders. When you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry—they are the perfect size.
