Chicken in Maple Syrup With Lemon Slices and Raisins

Recipe by dsfrenchie

I call this "Candy's Chicken" after a girlfriend who gave this to me many years ago - it is a family favorite. You could dip your chicken in an egg wash first before coating the chicken with bread crumbs but I omit that step to save calories and the recipe tastes just as good. Good luck saving some for leftovers!

I thought I would like the maple syrup; the plain way is better for me. I also tried the bread crumbs, and I think it was the best way to make them. I used some chicken thighs, and left them in for about 45 minutes. I think I would have liked them better if I would have cooked them longer, but we needed to eat. :0) Thank you for posting this.
