Syrup and Soy Chicken

Perfection on a plate doesn’t get easier than this.  For an extra treat, pair this recipe with some crispy chips (French fries) and just for good measure, to balance it out with something healthy, add petit pois peas or broccoli florets to the plate.

This recipe also works well by replacing the syrup with honey.
