Although Kraft is pretty reputable, I am not sure they really know what they are doing in the chef department. I made a few tweaks to their recipe, because if I didn't I would have been eating crunchy apples and onions, no bueno! I think this would also be good with a little Dijon mustard mixed into the sauce, I will try that next time.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced
- 1 large red apple, sliced thin
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (maple flavored is just fine)
- 1/3 cup Italian dressing
Heat oven to 350°.
Heat a medium oven-proof skillet over medium high heat; spray with cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in skillet. Let cook for 3 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Remove from heat.
Add the sliced onions and apples on top of the chicken. Whisk the syrup and Italian dressing together and pour over chicken/apple/onion mixture. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper then pop into the oven for 25 minutes.
At this point your chicken should be done, but the onions and apples will probably still be crunchy. Remove the chicken breasts, place on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Pop the onion and apples back into the oven for 10-15 more minutes until they are tender and caramelized.
Serve with couscous or rice.
