I have to tell you that years ago, one morning when I was going to get this chicken ready, I realized that I had run out of minced ginger. I hate it when that happens. Anyways, I used minced garlic instead and the chicken turned out great. So good in fact I continued to use garlic on occasion, totally on purpose!

If possible, try and baste this Supreme Sweet Chicken Breast dish a few times while baking. Sometimes just flip the breasts over a couple of times while it’s in the oven,. I find the chicken turns out even more flavorful. For the record my husband says he can’t tell the difference, he says the chicken tastes the same both ways. I am curious to see if you think there is a difference.

Supreme Sweet Chicken Breast
- 4 chicken breast, boneless, skinless
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 3 tblsp soy sauce
- 2 tsp ginger, minced or grated I have substituted minced garlic when I ran out of ginger and this recipe turned out beautifully as well!
- cooking spray
Pat chicken dry with paper towels and place in a large resealable bag. In a measuring cup add soy sauce, then syrup, and ginger or garlic. Stir and dump liquid into the bag with the chicken. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal it up. Adjust your chicken pieces to make sure they are all covered in the mixture. Allow your chicken to marinate in your fridge for at least an hour. The longer the better.
When you are ready to bake, Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 9x9 or 8x8 inch pan with tinfoil and cooking spray.
Place bag contents, chicken and liquid, into your prepared pan. Now you need to bake, uncovered, for a total of 45 minutes. The more you baste this chicken the better. I usually set my timer for 10 minutes. At that point I flip the entire chicken breast over. Set timer for another 10 minutes. Flip chicken breasts back over. You get the idea. For the last few minutes I usually turn the oven up to broil to darken the chicken a little if I am in the mood! Use a thermometer to make sure your chicken breasts are cooked before serving. Chicken breast sizes vary. Enjoy!
