Roasted apples with garlic might sound like a strange combination, but they are a perfect match! This recipe is quick enough for a weeknight dinner and delicious enough to prepare for company.

 

Yield

4 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chopped, peeled Braeburn apple
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 chicken thighs, bone in (about 2 pounds), skinned
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 475.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well to coat. Spread apple mixture on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray.
