Globecooking recipe : Maple Apple Chicken (Canada)

This may not be an authentic Canadian dish because I completely made it up, but it definitely uses Canadian flavours with oodles of maple syrup. Actually, when I went to get the maple syrup out of the cupboard, I realised there was none left so I used up a squeezy jar of maple flavour golden syrup instead. It used up a few slightly wrinkly apples out of the fruit bowl too !

Maple Apple Chicken

ingredients :

knob of butter
5 chicken fillets
1 large onion
3 apples
salt, pepper
1tsp Canadian mustard (or wholegrain mustard)
maple syrup (or maple flavour golden syrup)

Heat the butter in a large pan. Chop the chicken and onion and add to the pan. Brown on all sides.

Peel and chop the apples and add to the pan. Add an extra knob of butter. Cook over a medium heat, stirring every now and then, for ten minutes until the apple starts to go soft and caramelise.

Squeeze over a generous quantity of maple syrup. Add the mustard and salt and pepper and give it all a good stir to evenly coat the contents of the pan.

It's very sweet and sticky, so you could add a bit of a chilli kick to take the edge off it - the kids loved it though and it's very quick and simple to throw together.

Adding to this month's #KitchenClearout linky because it used the end of a bottle of maple flavoured golden syrup and a few wrinkly apples.


  1. That's a fab way to use the wrinkly apples. I'm adding apples to everything these days, trying to use as many as possible from the garden.

    1. Maybe you could stew them and freeze them?

  2. looks lovely, we have loads of apples at the moment
