Panko Crusted Chicken with a Maple-Mustard Pan Sauce
This was amazing. Josh talked about this for several days after I made it and he was very happy with how it turned out. It’s a recipe that I got from the October issue of Bon Appetit Magazine. I will definitely be making more recipes from Bon Appetit from now on. I’m really going to utilize that subscription!

Transfer chicken to plates. Add broth mixture to skillet; boil until reduced to 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Add butter; whisk until melted. Spoon sauce alongside chicken.
