Apple Glazed Chicken Breast Recipe

One thing I’ve come to know about myself is that I love apples and apple flavored anything. So when I was perusing my The Taste of Home Cookbook and found a recipe for apple-glazed pork chops, I had to try it (pg. A19 under 30 Minute LIght Entrees)! Since Nicolas and I are not big on pork (we do eat it, we just prefer chicken), I opted to try the recipe on chicken instead. And boy is it delicious!  This recipe’s rub will cover two or three chicken breasts depending on size.

Recipe:

2 tbs of brown sugar

1 tsp of paprika

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tsp of ground mustard

1 tsp of dried thyme

1 tsp of onion powder

1 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of pepper

Apple Jelly

Raw Chicken (2 breasts)

  1. Preheat the to 350°.
  2.  Mix all of the seasonings together.
  3. Rub the seasonings all over the chicken breast (the more the merrier!).
  4. Place chicken on a baking sheet (or anything you can cook in the oven) and cook until done.  It should cook for about 25 minutes, give or take.
  5. When the chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove from the oven.  Melt 3 tablespoons (or more)  of apple jelly in the microwave, then glaze the chicken breast.

That’s it!  It’s a very simple recipe, and it’s DELICIOUS!!! I’ve cooked it twice now, and I can’t get enough!  I love that this recipe is versatile in what I can add as a side, such as rice, broccoli, potatoes, etc.  You can throw this chicken on top of fresh salad greens.  It’s honestly fantastic without any sides.  I could just eat the chicken as my meal.  But thanks to a dessert recipe I tried for Thanksgiving using apple jelly, I was willing to try this recipe and LOVED it!
