How to Make Autumn Apple Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a skillet, over a medium heat add 1 tablespoon butter until melted. Cook chicken, turning once, until brown. Place chicken in a baking pan, sprinkle with oregano, salt and pepper. Place
    onion on top of the chicken; top with apple wedges.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the honey and water; and pour over apples. Dot with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Cover and bake 35 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

  5. LC SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Roasted Rutabagas and steamed kale. (To make rutabagas, toss peeled and quartered rutabagas with olive oil and some salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven till
    tender (about 15 to 25 minutes depending on the size of the rutabagas).
    If you don't like rutabaga, I found sweet potatoes work just as good roasted in the oven.
