Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze


"Chicken breasts adorned with a fresh rosemary rub, then sauteed and braised in a sauce of orange juice, white wine and maple syrup. This wonderfully rich glaze makes an elegant, quick dinner to serve to guests. To serve, place chicken on top of hot cooked rice on each plate and spoon sauce over the top. Wonderful served with steamed asparagus."

  1. Bring orange juice and wine to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat slightly, but keep high enough to continue a low boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in maple syrup and continue boiling for another 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until glossy and just slightly thickened. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the rosemary, salt and pepper. Rub mixture on both sides of chicken breasts, and set aside.
  3. Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken breasts, cover skillet and saute for about 5 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Pour orange-maple mixture over chicken (mixture will boil and bubble). Reduce heat to simmer; cover and let cook for another 10 minutes, basting occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and sauce has turned into a rich, thick glaze.

I made this SO MUCH faster & easier & it was SPECTACULAR. Instead of cooking whole chicken breasts (which take longer) I cut two large chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. I sprayed a saute p...

I forgot the wine, but made the sauce with just the oj and maple syrup. Wonderful, wonderful. Even the kids liked it!

HELPFUL TIP IF YOU WORK: I always make the chicken ahead of time then stick in my lock&lock container in the fridge, so that all I have to do is make the sauce when I come home, so the meal is r...

This is by far one of the most tastiest dishes I've ever tried. It is an AWSOME dish and we plan to use it as one of our main dishes on our gourmet banquet menu. This dish will be used for wed...

Absolutely delicious and quite easy to prepare. I made the recipe exactly as stated, no substitutions, and it was a winner. My husband loved it. I'll definitely be making this again. I serve...

Oooh I liked this recipe! I took reviewers' advice and used half the amount of maple syrup, and I added some cornstarch to reserved orange juice to put in at the end to thicken the glaze. My h...
