This easy chicken recipe is very quick to prepare and tastes fantastic. The maple syrup and bacon give the sauce a unique flavor.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Cook until chicken breasts are browned and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to serving plates and keep warm.

  • Add butter, bacon, sage leaves, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and chopped hazelnuts to the same skillet. Bring to a quick boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring regularly, until sauce thickens slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sage sauce over chicken.

First off very novice cook. No idea how big half bunch of leaves is so I cut the stems off of a.75 oz Publix bought packet and used half the packet. Next time the whole packet. Took the leaves out before putting onto the chicken. Also did not use any hazelnuts don't like them but next time I will use walnuts. No other changes. My wife loved the meal for me it was fine but food always tastes better when someone else makes it. Read More

Hazelnuts were so difficult to find in store; for that and a couple other reasons I wouldn't recommend this recipe to novice cooks like me. The sauce is particular too it burned within a couple seconds being overcooked. However it is a quick and cheap recipe and tastes pretty good for how fast it is to make. Read More
