Apple Chicken

This delightfully quick and simple autumnal inspired Paleo meal perks up chicken with the fall flavors of apples and cinnamon or allspice. The aroma alone evokes images of vibrantly colored foliage, leafy walkways and cool temperatures.

Although any variety of apples will work, tart apples such as Granny Smith are best in this recipe as they have the crisp flavor and firmness needed to hold their own during the cooking process.

Feel free to double this recipe and bring the leftovers along to work for a quick lunch.  Have it with a side of leafy greens and our Spicy Herb Dressing.
