I'm not sure we will be making this again. I didn't find that the apples gave the chicken that much flavor. My husband was sweet and ate it, but if he doesn't ask for seconds, it's not going in to the rotation.
DANG, THIS WAS REALLY GOOD AND REALLY EASY. I made jasmine rice and stirred the apples into it, and it was fantastic.
I used chicken leg quarters cut, baked for 30 min....yummy, I chopped the apples after peeling in a food processor making the pieces small so they didn't need mashing.
This was delicious and very easy to make. I typically don't enjoy chicken thighs as the main course, but with the apples, sage, and garlic, it was surprisingly tasty. I didn't expect them to get so much flavor from being on top of the apple mixture, but they certainly did, in addition to the freshly ground pepper and sea salt with which I seasoned them. Have saved this recipe and will serve it again!
I love this recipe, but I added about 1/2cup of apple cider to keep everything moist.
Easy and good. Served with garlic green beans and baked potato.
Delicious and easy Sunday-night dinner. My 8 year-old loved it as well.
Delicious. I would definitely serve this to guests. Adding to our regular rotation.
Fat from thighs runs onto apples. Thighs take extra 10 minutes by themselves.
Very happy to find this recipe online- my cookbook is at my other home. We had discussed the fact that this recipe, chosen for health, is good enough for company, before ever seeing your rating system. The apples are wonderful with the chicken. Add a salad and a little bread, and you have a great dinner. (The reviewer who compared the apples to rotting garbage must have a very limited diet, or very interesting garbage!)
This was only fair. It certainly tasted fine but was not exciting enough to make again. My husband made it and he said it was easy to make.
Followed the recipe exactly, and I don't know how this got such great reviews... These apples were the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted... Like what I imagine week-old rotting garbage would taste like. Luckily the flavor didn't absorb into the chicken or it would have gone into the trash along with the apples. Would give it zero stars if it were possible. Don't waste your time... Or your apples!
Everyone loved this one! My son said it tasted like Thanksgiving and my husband said we need to cook apples more often.
This is a great fall recipe! It has it all--inexpensive, easy and delicious. I just used Granny Smith apples and got an outstanding result. Husband loves it, too. Definitely one to make again.
My family and I love this recipe, it's a fall favorite of ours. If I can't find braeburns I use gala apples (organic). I use a chopper to finely chop the apples, leavings the skins on. I also use 5 large garlic cloves (or 8 smaller cloves) and boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cooking about 35 minutes. The combo of the garlic and apples is wonderful. I serve it with fresh green beans or sauteed spinach, makes for a beautiful presentation as well as a healthy meal!
This is a wonderful recipe. I used bone-in thighs and browned them first because I like the flavor browning adds. With the bone-in I still roasted for 25 mins. I served with Cider and Bacon sauce from this recipe http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1011270&cookbook_id=4837733 I used the browning pan to make the sauce...everything is better with bacon. It added the final flavor touch. Next time I may add butternut squash or parnips to the roasting pan. I think they would add an interesting flavor kick. I also served with cider carrots. Everyone raved...it was a suprisingly elegant weekend night meal.
Very good; however my apples were very dry and not too tasty. I might try a different kind next time that has more juice.
When I read the spice combo, I was convinced the end result would be phenomenal or disgusting, nothing in between. (BTW, I love "playing" with herbs, spices, etc.) Definitely phenomenal! I'll prepare this dish again. Next time I'll cook the chicken longer. I used bone-in thighs because that's what I had on hand. I noticed that 25 minutes wasn't quite enough.
I baked it a little longer then what the recipe called for. We like our chicken very well done.
This was very tasty. Easy to make.
Boneless thighs make this a snap to serve and eat. I wouldn't try using white meat - it would almost surely dry out. Increased the baking time to 40-45 mins. Last time, I skipped the sage (dry is fine; fresh no different) and still tasted fantastic! Sometimes, I add a bit of sugar (less than a TB) to perk up the natural sweetness of the apples. I also recommend adding more cinnamon and garlic. And leave some of the skins on for extra fiber! But don't try all Granny Smith - too tart. Empire and Rome apples work as well as Braeburn. I typically serve with a roasted green vegetable and a salad (or mashed potatoes, for a treat). An excellent dinner my boyfriend would have me make him a couple times a week, if it were up to him. Be sure to make enough for lunch leftovers!
This was a great recipe. Super easy and full of flavors. I served with green beans and a baked potato. My in-laws loved it. I will try with pork chops and maybe add some sauerkraut with the apples!
This was absolutely delicious! I added some garlic salt and oregano to the chicken and it came out perfectly. The apples were fantastic! Definitely a make again-easy and delicious!
