An easy, healthy and delicious baked Maple Dijon glazed Chicken Breast with Asparagus on the side. All the oven-fresh flavor and nutrition ready in under 30 minutes!


I may or may not have accidentally purchased over 10lbs of chicken, so I’m on an all-chicken-everything rampage right now.


I’d been meaning to do a maple dijon something - salmon to be more specific - but those filets were too far back in my freezer. So it was either emptying out everything in front and having to play a game of tetris to fit it all back, or make some good use of all that chicken.


Easy way out always.

Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 5 oz Chicken Breast
  • ⅛ tsp each Salt & Pepper
  • ⅛ tsp Olive Oil
  • 1½ tsp Butter, Melted
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup, Stevia-Sweetened (10ml)
  • 2 tsp Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
  • 1½ tsp Minced Garlic (2-3 cloves)

Asparagus:

  • ½ small bunch Asparagus (about 12 medium spears, 192g)
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • ½ tsp Butter, Melted
  • ⅛ tsp each Salt & Pepper

Instructions

Prep:

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut a 12 x 8 inch sheet of heavy-duty foil and fold up all 4 sides of the foil to make a container shape. Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
Pound chicken breast to even thickness, about 1- 1½” and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Cook:

Heat oil a nonstick skillet over high and cook chicken about 30 seconds each side until browned.
In a small bowl stir together melted butter, maple syrup, dijon mustard and garlic.
Pour ⅓ the sauce in the foil container, place chicken on, and move around to coat bottom.
Pour ⅓ sauce over chicken and spread evenly. Reserve ⅓ sauce.
Arrange asparagus in a single layer on the baking sheet, beside the foil bowl.
Spread remaining melted butter and garlic over asparagus, sprinkle on salt and pepper, and use hands or tongs to mix well.
Bake for about 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and asparagus is crisp-tender.
Top with reserved sauce and serve!
