Maple-Glazed Chicken with Apple-Brussels Sprout Slaw+

6 points

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2 cutlets and about 3/4 cup slaw)

8 (2-ounce) chicken cutlets (I used boneless chicken breasts)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar, divided
2 tablespoons maple syrup
8 ounces Brussels sprouts
1/4 cup dried currants
1 medium Fuji or Gala apple, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices

Changes after making this once:

Recommend adding herbs like thyme to maple syrup mix.  Keep breasts whole to retain moisture in meat)

Soak the currants in the vinegar and oil mix.  After cooking the chicken and glaze, remove from the pan and keep warm.  Put the vinegar/oil/currants into the pan, heat up and add the sprouts and apples for a brief warm up – don’t let them get soft.

1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan; keep warm. Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and syrup to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until reduced to 3 tablespoons. Return chicken to pan; turn to coat with glaze.

2. Cut Brussels sprouts in half lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Place remaining 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add Brussels sprouts, currants, and apple; toss to combine. Serve slaw with chicken.
