How to Make Baked Chicken with Apples & Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. Baste chicken pieces with some butter and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a light sprinkling of onion powder. Place chicken pieces in one layer in a 12 x 16 inch pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.
  2. Cut apples into quarters and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice to prevent browning. Saute apples in butter with sugar and cinnamon until apples are almost tender. Add the apple juice and seasonings and cook until sauce is reduced to about half. Add cream and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain fat and/or juices from chicken pan or place chicken in another pan. Place apples over and around the chicken and pour the sauce over chicken and apples -- continue baking and basting for about 15 minutes or until chicken is tender. (
  4. Serve this chicken dish with cinnamon rice or cinnamon noodles. (To make a simple cinnamon rice or noodles, toss in melted butter and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon).
