Simple Apple Cider Glazed Chicken

After this recipe, I am now convinced that apple cider and chicken belong together like peanut butter and jelly. They are a wonderful pair, those two. The acid in the cider makes the chicken so flavorful and moist in the most sensational way.

I remember my mother making baked chicken at least once a week growing up, and she makes it very simply with salt and pepper, some onions and a few other ingredients but it tastes like the best thing you have ever had in your life. Simple cooking really is the best.

I tried to honor my mom’s cooking approach with this recipe. So I simply adding some apple slices and a hint of additional sweetness from the brown sugar and soy sauce to create a sensational dinner recipe that will make autumn that much better. So get this Apple Cider Glazed Chicken in the oven asap and let me know how it turns out for you!
