If you think you can’t cook, you’re not alone.
For hundreds of years, men (especially) and women across the world have used the “I can’t cook!” excuse to get out of the kitchen. In fact, food prep avoidance is the number one reason that takeout menus exist at all.
But today, I’m here to let you in on a little secret: You CAN cook. You’re just lazy/ scared/ demotivated/ filthy rich.
Thank goodness Maple Leaf Prime offers new ways to keep it simple. With Maple Leaf Prime Naturally fresh Chicken Breast Fillets, Butterflied or Thin Sliced chicken breasts, the cuts are specially selected and perfectly sliced to cut down on prep and cook time.
Translation: Zero tolerance for slackers!
Plus, the chicken is always raised on their own vegetable grain feed, and packaged in their Fresh Sure package (its airtight seal makes sure your chicken stays fresher, longer). And if you change your mind, it freezes beautifully and can be enjoyed another time.
Yes, the cuts do cost a little more than buying chicken by the pound from a poultry farm. But, they still cost a heck of a lot less than takeout, especially if you find yourself dialing for dinner more than twice per week. Imagine how easy prepping dinner is when all the cleaning, trimming and slicing is done for you! Plus, with all the hidden sodium, fat and sugar in fast food meals, you’ll be doing your wallet – and your heart – a favour by sticking to Maple Leaf Prime Naturally.

Oh this sounds delish! I love having a good chicken recipe in my back pocket:) Thanks for the tip!

I just cooked the thin sliced last night, AND I used a coupon from the FB page to get them.
I should have tried a new recipe, but I was short on time. Which is why I cooked these, super fast to bake. Bake, chop up and we had Chicken Caesar Salad – they were delish!
Hahaha we’re always thinking along the same lines ;) And, thanks for the feedback!
The butterflied chicken breasts look delish! Also, the recipe seems so easy to make. Can’t wait to try it out this weekend. Thanks Lena.
Yep, I love an easy recipe :) Enjoy!
Didn’t know that Maple Leaf had portions. Love the recipe!
They do! Enjoy!

I love chicken and I think Prime has really great lean portions and although it’s more expensive so you take the good with the bad. Your recipe sounds great !
