|Apple Garlic Chicken w/ Pan fried Garlic Potatoes & Carrots|
Start off with some chicken (breasts, legs, thighs etc.) and marinate them in about a 1/2 cup of apple juice and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mince up one clove of fresh garlic and add that to the chicken with some salt, pepper, and dried (or fresh) thyme. Marinate them for a couple of hours then transfer to a glass baking dish with the remainder if the marinade. Peel and chop up into small pieces one apple and add it to the top of the chicken with some fresh (or dried) chopped up parsley. Bake the chicken at 350 degrees until the chicken is cooked depending on the cut you use (30-40 mins).
The apple and garlic really balanced each other out and the small apple pieces on top were crisp and sweet. I know the skin on chicken is said to be the more fattening part to eat, but eating this skin will be a treat. It is full of flavor!
