What’s for Dinner Tonight? Garlic Chicken with Maple Chili Glaze

What’s For Dinner Tonight?  Garlic Chicken with Maple Chili Glaze

Another night, Another Dinner.  But tonight I am actually excited to make this great recipe I found in one of my many MANY cooking magazines. The original recipe called for ancho chilies and sage, both things I did not have in my pantry tonight. But with a little inventiveness and substitution this recipe just talks to me.

The combination of the sweet and spicy flavors makes this a stand out chicken dinner. I was a little nervous that the recipe wouldn’t work so well because I thought it was weird that the glaze was not cooked with the chicken but just brushed on right before serving. However, it worked out really deliciously. I still think though that the glaze that this recipe calls for would be a great coating for a baked chicken and will have to try it a.s.a.p.

In fact, I am imagining baking chicken nuggets in this glaze and then using them in some wraps with avocado or on top of a salad even. Yumalish!

I will let you know how that works out real soon.

FYI – one of my favorite things about this recipe is the cooked garlic. I loved spreading it on my potatoes before I ate it.  Tonight midnight snack a few tam tams with the extra left over garlic.

 My lucky husband :)

Hope you enjoy What’s for  Dinner Tonight.
