Impressing the In-laws

I came across this delicious dinner recipe in one of the many cookbooks I checked out earlier this year. Since then, it has become one of my favorites and one that Steph claims she will eventually use to wow her new in-laws. You should all give it a try. It’s quite tasty, not to mention simple.

Oven-Baked Apple Barbecue Chicken

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 min
Baking time: 35-45 min

One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup maple syrup or honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds total)
1 large apple, cored, peeled, and cut into large chunks
1 large onion, cut into large wedges

Preheat oven to 375° F.

In a large bowl, combine: tomatoes, soy sauce, chili powder, vinegar, honey, and garlic. This will be your homemade barbeque sauce. Spread over the chicken, apple, and onion, and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Note: For a fruity twist, pineapple can be substituted for apple.
