DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Slice chicken breasts partway through for stuffing, finely chop mushrooms and onion.
  • In small skillet, sautee onions in butter and brown sugar until caramelized. Set aside in bowl.
  • Fry bacon in large skillet, remove and sautee mushrooms in bacon fat.
  • Chop bacon and mix with onion, sage, 1 tbsp maple syrup and strained, cooked mushrooms.
  • Stuff chicken, flour lightly and brown in remaining bacon grease.
  • Arrange chicken in baking pan. Mix together 3 tbsps maple syrup with water and pour over chicken.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning once. Add more water/syrup if pan is drying up, to prevent burning.
  • Serve with reheated, leftover stuffing spooned on top each breast and drizzle with sauce from pan and maple syrup.
  • Mashed potatoes or colcannon are a good complement - spoon sauce over potatoes as well.
