Maple-Glazed Chicken and Root Vegetables

in Recipes

Chicken breasts, which I always brown, then put in lightly greased baking dish (I have this 9 x 13 Pyrex thing).  Pour 1/2 c. chicken broth over chicken. Chop up some potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and onions and surround the chicken with the vegetables.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over the whole thing.  Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt some butter (about 2 tbsp.) in a small saucepan and add 1/3 c maple syrup (I never worry if it`s “real” — in this recipe it all tastes the same).  After the first 20 min., baste the chicken and veggies with the butter-syrup mixture every 5 minutes or so for another 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru and veggies are tender.  One dish meal!
