Mustard Maple Glazed Chicken With Apples & Leeks

Maple Mustard Glazed Chicken with Apples & Leeks

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while… I did a little traveling to South Florida and went on the most amazing adventure trip to Costa Rica with a ginormous group of friends. Truly EPIC! But I’m back now, and have a scrumptious recipe to share (courtesy of my Mom). I was very anxious to see how the apples would mesh in this dish, and honestly, was blown away when it was done!


  • 1 3/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 crisp, sweet apple, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. coarse ground mustard
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium.
  2. Add 1 tbsp. oil to pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in pan; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until well browned.
  3. Add leeks, apples, and garlic to chicken; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until leeks begin to soften. Reduce heat on pan to low.
  4. Combine broth, syrup, mustard, vinegar, and thyme, then add to chicken; simmer 2-3 minutes or until mixture thickens and chicken is 165°F.
  5. Remove chicken from pan; let stand 5 minutes to rest.
  6. Slice chicken, serve and enjoy!
