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!
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1½ cups apple butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Place chicken in a shallow baking dish.
- Season with salt and pepper. Cover with apple butter and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
- Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
