We eat a lot of chicken at our house, and figuring out different ways to serve it gets challenging. My family went nuts for the cozy maple flavors in this recipe, so now I share it at potlucks, too. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, ON

"I was skeptical about the flavor combination but it was VERY good! I really liked the glaze - I made extra. We didn't grill but cooked the chicken in the skillet. Will definitely be added to our dinner rotation!"

"These flavors do not go especially well together, nor do they serve as a decent chicken glaze. This was an especially 'weird'-tasting chicken as far as my taste buds are concerned. submitted by 'artless'"

"A great addition to the regular rotation of chicken recipes! I used fresh thyme & broiled the chicken (since it isn't grilling weather at the moment). I doubled the glaze for 12 thighs, and it was more than enough."

"How exciting to be the first to review this recipe! Just as the description states, I too was looking for a new way to prepare chicken. This flavor combination can't be beat! I used dried thyme, and for me this made enough to glaze 8 small chicken thighs. I thinly sliced the leftovers for a sandwich, which my husband said was delicious. This will definitely make the regular rotation!"
