Ingredients
Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 tbsp (15mL) 
Vegetable oil
Onion, diced
Firm pears, cored and thinly sliced
3 tbsp (45mL) 
Pure maple syrup
1 tbsp (15mL) 
Soy sauce
 
Chopped fresh chives
2 cups (500mL) 
Cooked Rice


Directions
HEAT oil in a skillet over medium heat.

COOK chicken for 4-5 minutes per side. Add onions and continue to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.

ADD pear slices and continue cooking for 3 minutes until pears start to caramelize, stirring occasionally to brown evenly.

STIR in maple syrup and soy sauce. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 2-3 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and the internal temperature reaches 170˚F (77˚C).

SPRINKLE with chives and serve immediately over rice.

TIP: You can replace the pears with crisp, tart apples that hold their shape, like Granny Smith.
