Seared Chicken with Maple Glaze

Hello and sorry again for the late post.  The Rogers Cable and Internet Gods made a visit to our apartment this morning and got our internet up and running again, PHEW!
I hope you are all enjoying this FANTASTIC weather we are having today! I am heading out for a short run in a bit.
Here is another quick and delicious recipe I found (and loved!) from cleaneatingmag.com.  What I like best about this recipe (other than the maple glaze!) is that it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare!!  Check it out…
Serves: 4
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 baby gold or fingerling potatoes, quartered (about 2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, until soft. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Add thyme, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute, still stirring occasionally, until thyme is fragrant. Add potatoes, broth and maple syrup and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium, partially cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Add zucchini and cook for 1 minute, until crisp-tender.
