Maple-Black Pepper Glazed Chicken
Two split chicken breasts, bone-in
1 T oil
1T butter

Rinse and dry the chicken, and allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Brush the chicken with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. While the chicken cooks, melt the butter and combine with the maple syrup and black pepper. Remove at 15 minutes and brush with the maple glaze. Return the chicken to the oven for another 10 minutes; remove and brush with glaze. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, brush a final time with glaze and return to the oven for another 5 minutes, or until a thermometer registers 170°F
