Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  buttermilk
  • 3  Tablespoons  Dijon mustard
  • 1  Pound  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into large nugget-size pieces
  • Butter or nonstick cooking spray, for greasing
  • 1¼  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • ¼  Cup  cornmeal
  • 2  Teaspoons  paprika
  • 1¼  Teaspoon  salt
  • ½  Cup  pure maple syrup from Canada
  • 2  Tablespoons  butter
  • 1  Teaspoon  ketchup

Directions

In a large plastic bag combine the buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of the mustard, and the chicken. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Grease the foil well.

In another large bag, combine the flour, cornmeal, paprika, and salt. Add chicken in batches; shake gently to coat. Place all of the chicken in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes.

In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, butter, ketchup, and remaining 2 tablespoons mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, just until butter is melted. Remove from heat. Dip each nugget in the maple glaze and return to the baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the glaze is set, about 5 minutes.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
