This recipe is a match made in heaven between bourbon, fresh thyme, and maple syrup. It's also a really cool method that is universal for preparing almost anything. The basic idea is that whatever is being cooked (pork, vegetables, or in this case, chicken) is made delicious and "sticky" by adding a sweetener to a pan sauce and then reducing it while dinner cooks in it.

While the chicken in searing, in a small dish whisk together the stock, syrup, and bourbon. Add the bourbon mixture to the skillet along with the thyme sprigs and continue cooking, turning the chicken occasionally, until the meat is cooked through and the sauce has reduced to a thick syrupy consistency, 8 to 10 minutes. (If the sauce reduces to a syrupy consistency before the chicken has cooked through, add a few splashes of stock to the skillet and continue cooking.)
To serve, remove and discard the thyme sprigs. Spoon the sticky sauce over the chicken and enjoy warm.
