Cooking Utensils Required

Cooking Directions

Before you begin preparing the apples, onions, and chicken pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Read: Convection ovens and Conventional ovens cook at slightly different temperatures. Convection ovens generally cook about 25 degrees hotter. If you are cooking with a Convection oven you will want to cook the chicken at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes. If you are cooking with a Conventional oven, you will want to cook the chicken at 425 degrees F for 27 – 30 minutes.

Apples

  1. In a strainer, rinse apples.
  2. With a knife cut the apple in half.
  3. Cut each half again, you will have 4 slices now.
  4. Remove the core and seeds.
  5. Cut each slice into thirds.
  6. Separate apples evenly between the two large glass baking dishes

Onion

  1. In a strainer, rinse onion.
  2. Cut each end from the onion.
  3. Proceed with cutting rings, circular onion slices.
  4. Separate onion evenly between the two large glass baking dishes.
  5. With the apple and onion slices in each baking dish, add a few splashes of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  6. Mix apples and onions together making sure they are all covered evenly. (I mixed them together with my hands).

Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a strainer, rinse chicken.
  3. With a knife or kitchen scissors cut off any excess fat.
  4. To help the chicken cook faster, cut it in half.
  5. Place chicken in glass baking dishes over apple and onion slices. Make sure there is a small separation between each piece.
  6. Add additional seasoning, in this case salt and pepper.
  7. Place in the oven for 25 minutes.
