It's such an easy and quick recipe that I know I'll be making it again and again.
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp. lite soy sauce
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lb.)
Salt and pepper
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Add maple syrup, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and cayenne in a small bowl and mix well.
With paper towels pat the chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.
Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add the chicken; cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add syrup mixture to pan. Thicken the sauce with some cornstarch/water mixture till it was a nice consistancy. Simmer, turning chicken until glaze is slightly thickened and chicken is cooked through, about 2-4 minutes.
