Hagmans Maple Flavored Chicken

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I know this has been discussed so forgive the repeat. I love the way this recipe smells when making it.

6 Boneless chicken breasts halves

Salt and pepper

1 cup of maple flavored syrup

1/2 cup of fruit or white vinegar

1/2 cup of ketchup

1/4 cup of brown sugar.

The problem: she calls for it to bake for 1 1/2 hours covered and baste for a half hour uncovered. The chicken always comes out tough and dry. What advice would you have to make the chicken more moist.

I can't imagine cooking chicken breast halves for 2 hours total and not having them come out dry. The cooking time is just too long...what oven temperature do you use?

I totally agree with Sylvia. That cooking time is much too long unless the chicken breasts are huge and frozen solid to begin with.

So about how long do you suppose it should take?

For those that might be interested to know the answer to my last question of how to make a chicken so it doesn't come out to dry please refer to the following article:

http://busycooks.about.com/od/chickenrecipes/a/howtocookchixbr.htm

It says that you should soak the chicken in salt and sugar water. How long depends on how thawed the chicken is.

I know it's a silly question but hey that's just me.

That is called a brine. I brine whole chickens, duck, pork, etc. Sometimes my brine contains juniper berries, bay leaves, citrus zest, maple syrup, etc.

But 1.5-2 hours is crazy long for chicken breasts. I would bake for 30 minutes and then see if they are done. It also helps to pound the chicken into an even thickness - often breasts are thicker on one end than the other.

Oh My Gosh!!!! :lol: I have found heaven. I soaked that bird for almost two days and put it in the slow cooker for four hours. You want to talk about something good. You have got to try this recipe!!

So what recipe did you finally use, Ken? Inquiring minds need to know. smile.gif

I still used the recipe above but I believe the brining was the key. When I went to slice the chicken it fell off in nice juicy pieces. No dry chicken here. I'm going to use some of it for a pot pie later this week. Thanks for all your input. No more dry chicken for me!! :)

Yes - brining makes ALL the difference for chicken breast as it is a dry cut of meat to begin with. Just wait until you experiment with various brines. I have an entire book on just brines.

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
