Chicken and maple syrup….who knew?

Leave a comment

This meal was a one dish wonder, sweet and savoury all at the same time. The beans were tender and the potatoes, half roasted, half soft and sweet. It was an interesting dish that incorporated flavour not usually found in traditional Australian cooking but I found it tasty and definitely one for the ‘keepers’ pile. Like the title says ‘chicken and maple syrup….who knew?’ well probably a lot of people, but I didn’t….now I do….see, learnt something new today!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken & Roasted Maple Vegetables

Serves: 4

4 thigh fillets
1kg potatoes, diced
4 strips of bacon
3 cups frozen or fresh green beans
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 finely diced onion
1/2 tsp thyme (fresh from the garden)

Heat oven to 200C.
Place greens beans in the bottom of a casserole dish.
Add potatoes on top of green beans.
Wrap the bacon around the chicken thighs.
Drizzle oil over chicken and veggies evenly.
Season with salt, pepper, diced onions and thyme.
Slowly pour maple syrup over the entire dish.
Bake for about an hour or until potatoes are tender.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
