Apple Butter Chicken #WeekdaySupper

Apple Butter Chicken
Fresh Apple Butter is one of my favorite fall treats. If you are not familiar with it, apple butter has no dairy components. It gets the name from the smooth, creamy texture. I love it spread on bread. Here in my neck of the woods, we usually eat it on cottage cheese as a side dish.
You can buy it commercially made. I sometimes do. It is usually located in the jelly aisle.
Apple Butter Chicken takes the sweet taste of apple butter tamed with a bit of cinnamon then slathered over tender chicken thighs. The best of fall ready in fewer than 30 minutes!
