Rad Recipes: Maple Mustard Chicken (*P, *GF)

Sometimes an idea for a recipe or a flavor combination will pop in my head and I just HAVE to try it.

Yesterday, the idea of grilled chicken breast with a maple-mustard glaze popped in, quickly followed by the taste for a BLT… and I knew I had to try it. So good!

I am quite sure that there are other versions of this out there, but here’s my super-simple recipe. Enjoy!

Organic chicken breast cutlets (thin sliced- mine were about 1/2 inch at the thickest)

Heirloom tomato

Maple bacon (you can sub turkey bacon if you prefer)

Organic Romaine lettuce

Your favorite bread, sandwich roll, or burger buns (*skip the bread if you’re eating Paleo or Gluten-Free)

1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons brown or Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Cooking spray or oil

1. Lightly coat skillet with cooking spray or oil; heat to medium high

2. Meanwhile, mix the mustard & maple syrup in shallow dish; coat chicken breast cutlets

3. Cook the chicken in skillet thoroughly, 3-5 minutes per side (check thickest part for doneness)

4. While the chicken is cooking, crisp bacon in a separate skillet to your desired doneness

5. Rinse the lettuce and slice the tomato; prep your bread/roll/buns with a bit of mayo, if you like

6. Assemble and enjoy!
