Cherry Maple Glazed Chicken Strips*

What you'll need:
2-3lbs of chicken breast tenderloins
2 cups maple syrup
3 tbsp soy sauce
¼ cup dried cherries
½ fresh lemon
¼ to ½ cup sugar
Salt and pepper or steak seasoning to taste

Step 1: Begin by making your sauce, combine maple syrup, soy sauce and cherries in a small sauce pan over medium heat.

Step 2: Squeeze juice from lemon into mixture, stir until combined.

Step 3: Once mixture is heated through. begin to add ¼ cup sugar and stir until dissolved. Taste and decide if extra sugar is needed. Cover sauce and remove from heat.

Step 4: Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken tenders into well oiled pan. Season with salt and pepper or steak seasoning to your taste. Cook approximately 3 minutes per side or until browned.

Step 5: Once chicken is browned on both sides, slowly pour sauce over the chicken. Bring to a simmer, turn heat down to a low setting. Cover chicken and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Checking sauce periodically and stirring if necessary.

Step 6: Plate chicken and serve with or without extra sauce.

On a side note, for this evening's dinner I served homemade mashed potatoes, cheddar bay biscuits, and corn as sides. I also tend to make rice pilaf with this but really any side goes quite well with the chicken!

As always any requests, comments, or questions are greatly appreciated! Talk to you soon!
