Maple Syrup and Ginger Flavored Chicken Breasts


Ingredients (4 portions)

  • 4 chicken breasts or 8 chicken legs


  • 85 ml (1/3 cup) maple syrup
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) orange juice
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) Dijon mustard
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) ginger, minced
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients.
  2. Trim off fat or excess skin from chicken and marinade for at least 2 hours in the maple syrup mixture.
  3. Preheat the barbecue to medium-high.
  4. When the chicken is on the barbecue, prepare sauce. Remove chicken pieces from the marinade. DO NOT dispose of the marinade! Cook it over medium-high heat (boil for at least 5 minutes to ensure that all bacteria are destroyed!) to reduce to a consistency of sauce, for serving with the chicken. Barbecue chicken for about 4 minutes on each side.
This marinade is also delicious with shrimp, pork loin or chops, scallops, salmon or trout fillets, and turkey brochettes.
