I wanted to share this easy dinner recipe with you, it’s quickly become a favorite in our house and is perfect for nights when I don’t have a lot of time. The maple mustard sauce gives a sweet spicy flavor to the chicken and pairs wonderfully with rice but is amazing by itself as well.
I found the original recipe on FoodNetwork.com and it was for chicken thighs, which no one is really a fan of in our house. I switched out the thighs for chicken breast pieces and you can also use the chicken tenders if you have those on hand. I changed up some other ingredients as well, like switching out the minced garlic for garlic powder to save time.
Maple Mustard Chicken Bites
Adapted From FoodNetwork.com
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into one inch pieces
2 tbs avocado oil for pan for cooking chicken
2/3 cup dijon mustard
2/3 cup real maple syrup
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together in a small bowl the dijon mustard, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Set aside.
Heat oil on medium in a large frying pan.
Add chicken and cook through, about 10mins.
Pour Mustard sauce over the chicken and bring to a boil while stirring.
Reduce the heat to low cover and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Sauce will begin to thicken and coat the chicken.
Serve by itself or over rice.
