Maple Baked Apple Chicken

Got a little creative with those apple slices. :)

Got a little creative with those apple slices. šŸ™‚

I found this recipe several years ago in a magazine. It’s so simple and SO GOOD. It always seems to be a crowd pleaser. I always tend to pair it with mashed potatoes and peas. So, give it a go. You’ll be glad you did.

Maple Baked Apple Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound-ish)
1/2 of a medium onion, sliced into rings
2 medium red cooking apples, sliced
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup Italian dressing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray large nonstick ovenproof* skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet on stove on medium-high heat. Add chicken, cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned on both sides. Remove from heat. Place onion on top of chicken; place apples around sides of chicken. Mix syrup and dressing; pour over chicken. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Spoon syrup mixture in skillet over chicken just before serving.

*If your skillet has a plastic handle, there’s no need to buy another one. Simply wrap the handle tightly in aluminum foil and you’ll be good to go.
