Apple Chicken Dinner

Have you ever experienced a night when dinner time is fast approaching and you realize you don’t have the ingredients of whatever dish you were planning to make? If you’re like me this happens a lot and it often results in new recipes. I developed this Apple Chicken recipe by accident one night when I had limited ingredients in the house and had to make dinner. Now three years later, it’s a family favorite and the best part is that it’s healthy and very simple to make. As always, it’s gluten free and dairy free and for those with additional allergies it is also egg free, soy free, and nut free.

The recipe is quite simple to make. It has four ingredients and it takes 35 minutes to cook.
