I originally got this recipe from Elana's Pantry Website while searching for healthy and GF recipes. Chicken is a favorite meat in our household. We eat more Chicken than any other meat. (Except my vegetarian!) So I am always looking for new creative ways to cook it. I've definitely made Balsamic chicken, and Rosemary chicken, but not Apple chicken. I did change it up a bit by adding the cranberries and decreasing the salt. The original recipe calls for fresh Rosemary. I am out of fresh, so I used dried. I also added a stuffing made with the same, cranberries and apples.
