This maple glazed chicken recipe makes a very tasty chicken dinner. It’s quick and easy and certain to please your family and friends!
This maple glazed chicken recipe is one of our readers’ favorite recipes, and for good reason! It is DELICIOUS!!
Not only that, it is super easy to make with just 5 ingredients. I have made this chicken recipe for our family for years and my husband and the kids have always gobbled it up! I usually make some rice and a vegetable like broccoli to go with it, but you can serve it with any easy side and vegetable.
Here are some good side options for the maple glazed chicken:
Rice – This is my favorite because it’s easy to just throw some rice on and it will be done in 15 minutes. My husband likes using a rice cooker so we just toss the rice in there and it cooks itself. He also uses rice for other lunches so he often makes a big batch and then we can just warm up some of it to go with whatever dinner I’m serving.
Potatoes – Potatoes are also a good option – I usually cube them and boil until tender, but you could also make mashed potatoes or baked potatoes if you prefer.
Dinner rolls or bread – Don’t be afraid to just serve with sliced bread or store bought dinner rolls. If you’re short on time, it is OK to take shortcuts to make dinner easier. It is much easier and cheaper than eating out and most kids appreciate simple meals.
A vegetable – I usually serve it with broccoli because my family always eats it, but you can serve with mixed vegetables, squash, a California blend if you want it to look fancy or even stir fry vegetables. We mostly use the frozen vegetables and just microwave them shortly before the chicken is ready.
A salad – This could be a dinner salad with your favorite lettuce as simple or as complicated as you like. For an easy salad, I often slice cucumbers and onions and add a viniagrette salad dressing. This would be really good with black olives, too.
A sliced veggie tray – I like to make a combination of cucumbers, baby carrots, sliced bell peppers.

Flavor sounds yummy, but 25 minutes doesn’t sound long enough…

This is one of our favorite recipes!! Love your cookbook!!
Wow this looks amazing and so easy. Love!
Absolutely yummy. Have made this twice now and I use bone in chicken. It is so cheap to make, even in Australia, and is a meal that my family and I look forward to all week when I put it on the menu. I served with oven bakes brocolli and cous cous tonight. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
My partner can’t have lemon juice, what could I use inplace?
I suppose you could try vinegar but I’m not sure that would taste right.

Maybe orange juice?
Yes you could try it.
Maybe you can use a wine instead or a flavored vinegar like balsamic?
i would try another citrus fruit such as lime or orange. good luck and happy cooking
Try lime juice!
Would this work with boneless chicken thighs?
Yes it would.
This is supper tonight, glaze on the bottom of the pan over sweet potatoes sounds yummy. Thanks for simple and good.
You just helped me figure out what to serve this with! Thanks!
I made this for supper tonight and oh my goodness, it is delicious! I had to double my glaze, so I used half maple syrup and half regular Aldi syrup and it was still delicious. I served it with rice, butternut squash, broccoli, and French bread.
Oh yum Wendy that sounds like such a good menu. I am in the middle of writing 120 menus for our facebook thing and am running out of ideas. If you don’t mind I may have to use your’s because it sounds like a great combination.
I made this tonight and it was a big hit. I served the sauce over brown rice.
Thank you Judy for letting us know your family liked it so much.
The flavorful pancake syrup.. or the (almost) flavorless > Vermont syrup from maple trees? (I ask because I have a different recipe for ribs that specifically calls for the tree syrup that is a bit thicker the way clear Karo corn syrup is)
Just use regular old pancake syrup. Actually you can use any maple flavored syrup that you have on hand.
