Recently I’ve been taking a look at my recipes here and realized that I’ve been sadly remiss in the area of main dishes. Almost every night we are scratch-cooking our dinners and while my intent was to share our everyday recipes with you all, life has gotten in the way and the hectic family household hasn’t allowed for photos. No more I say! Last week Brad and I took a bit of time to get shots of dinners and today I’m sharing Brad’s favourite BBQ Maple Chicken and Maple Caramelized Onion recipe with you all.

Brad has a soft spot for maple syrup…we are Canadian and surrounded by glorious maple syrup at this time of year so he’s a happy guy!
