Preheat oven to 
Remove chicken from brine and pat dry with paper towel
Heat oil in a heavy oven proof skillet
sprinkle chicken with black pepper and curry powder and place in the skillet
Sprinkle the other side of the chicken with curry powder and pepper
Let the chicken cook for a bit before you try to move it.  This will prevent it from sticking so much.  Then gently loosen and move it around the pan a bit.
Once the first side is nicely browned, turn the chicken over
drizzle with maple syrup.  Turn the chicken over so both sides are coated with syrup.
Bake for about 45 min or until chicken reaches 165° internally.
