Maple Spring Chicken


  • 1 chicken, 2-1/2 to 3 lb. (cut up)
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 c. chopped almonds
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice


Place chicken pieces in a shallow, buttered baking dish. Mix remaining ingredients and pour evenly over chicken. Bake uncovered, 50–60 minutes at 325 degrees. Baste occasionally. This baked chicken is especially good served with rice.
