Method

MAPLE-LIME SOUR CREAM

  1. Blend the sour cream and Maple Roch maple syrup with the lime zest and juice. Keep cool.

CHICKEN

  1. Toss the chicken strips with the Maple Roch maple syrup and lime zest and juice, and marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the fridge.
  2. Once the chicken's marinated, put a pan on medium heat, and cook chicken in its liquid for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring frequently until it's completely cooked and the sauce is thickened. Coat the chicken well with sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
