This Fall, I have been trying to cook more home-cooked meals for my little clan and eat-out less. That's tricky when I get slammed during the fall season with lots of sessions and orders but so far, I've done pretty well. One of my fall favorites is Maple-Baked Apple Chicken. Just saying the name makes me feel like I'm cooking a culinary masterpiece. Best of all, it's super easy & fast and my husband loves it.
Maple Baked Apple-Chicken
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1/2 cup sliced onions
2 red cooking apples, sliced
1/2 cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
1/3 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Spray large ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 min. on each side or until lightly browned on both sides. Remove from heat.
PLACE onions on top of chicken; surround with apple slices. Mix syrup and dressing; pour over chicken.
BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF). Spoon syrup mixture in skillet over chicken just before serving.
