COOK TIME

After reading this recipe name are you thinking, "Apple Glazed Chicken, are you kidding?" We kid you not. These flavors really complement each other and treat your mouth to a taste sensation that you'll fall in love with.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (3- to 3-1/2-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup apple jelly
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 red apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges (see Note)
What To Do:
  1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Dip the chicken into the seasoned flour, coating completely.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Brown the chicken in batches for 5 to 7 minutes per side.
     
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the apple jelly, lemon juice, and cinnamon; mix well then stir in the apples. Add entire mixture to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low.
     
  4. Add reserved cooked chicken to skillet and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken and the sauce has glazed the chicken, turning it halfway through cooking. Serve chicken topped with apples and any glaze remaining in the skillet.
Note

I like to use Cortland apples for their particular color and taste, but any apples you have on hand will work. And if you prefer, you can peel them first.

Im going to try a variation of this with apple cider and putting in crockpot. I added onions with the apples. Will let u know how it tastes.

DOES ANYONE HAVE A SUGGESTION ON WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS APPLE GLAZED CHICKEN RECIPE? I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE IT. IT SOUNDS DELISH! JUST CAN'T THINK OF WHAT WOULD COMPLIMENT IT FOR SERVING.

What about a flavored rice, maybe rice pilaf? You can make whatever you want!

I use my homemade apple butter to glaze meats with, goes great on pork chops, chicken, and I rub it under the skin for my turkey! YUM!! Try something new and you won't be disappointed!

Has anyone tried this recipe on turkey - sounds like it would be good!

This is a great recipe for the oversized electric skillet I was given. I agree with step one, I do this in a large zip bag to save on the mess. This skillet also works well with the chunky applesauce recipe. Great recipes, keep em coming.

Our test kitchen says this recipe should work fine without step 1, though it won't look and taste quite the way it did when we tested and approved it. Thanks for asking.

Is it necessary to use flour on the chicken with this recipe. Can I deviate from around the recipe and just go and start at steps 2 on down.
