Maple Herb Dressing
Servings: 2
Author: Aimee from A.K. Kitchen & Nutrition
  • 2 Tbsp maple
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • juice and zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard (I highly recommend a horseradish mustard)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 Tbsp tarragon & other herbs I like thai basil & tarragon together
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder or paprika
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Mix maple syrup with mustard seeds and crushed red pepper flakes, stir and let it sit to infuse.

  2. Very finely mince shallot, garlic and herbs together until it is almst like a paste. Tip: add salt when you have chopped everything down to small pieces and again a 1-3 more times as you are chopping to help bring out the oils, nutrients and soften the flavor.

    Let it sit in the open air for about 30 minutes as you prepare the rest of the dressing and chicken. Add this mix in as the last step to the dressing.

  3. Mix lemon juice, mustard, olive oil, and spices into the maple syrup until it becomes an emulsified mixture. Let sit while you prepare the chicken.

  4. When you are almost ready to serve the chicken, mix in the garlic/shallot/herb mixture to the sauce and stir somewhat virgorously until it is all mixed together. Dress your chicken and vegetables with sauce.
