  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 8 skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients with 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well to coat.

  2. Spread on a 15"x10" jelly-roll pan sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Season chicken with remaining salt and pepper; arrange on top of apple mixture.

  3. Bake, uncovered, at 475 degrees for 25 minutes, or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.
