Maple Glazed Chicken

¼ cup maple syrup
4 teaspoons lemon juice or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons butter
4 whole chicken legs
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 450'. Combine the maple syrup, lemon juice, and butter in a small saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Line a baking dish with foil and grease. Pat the chicken dry (and trim excess skin, if desired) and lay it on the foil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes, then pour the glaze over the pieces. Basting occasionally, cook for another 15 minutes, or until the meat is cooked throughout and the juices run clear. Serves 4.

Bag, freeze and reheat later!
