Maple Chicken

I can't wait to share this recipe with you. It's so stinkin simple and tastes like you spend hours working your fingers to the bone...(and lets let everyone think thats what you did). I served my chicken with a baked potato and a salad but I think it would taste awesome if you shredded it and served it over rice too...this Maple Chicken is so versatile and delicious no matter how you serve it...you'll be adding it to your menu rotation, I am sure of it!

Maple Chicken
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breast (you could use any piece of chicken, thats just what I used)
4 t. lemon juice
1/2 c. maple syrup (you can use reduced fat/sugar-free if you choose to)
1 T butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix maple syrup, lemon juice and butter in a small sauce pan. Simmer for 5 minutes. Spray a baking dish with pan coating and place chicken pieces in it. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and pour maple mixture on top. Place chicken back in the oven and cook for another 20-25 minutes (time will depend on how thick your chicken is) or until juices run clear. Serve while hot.
