This saucy Applesauce Grilled Chicken is so tempting. It’s easy, tender and full of flavor.
Making grilled chicken seems complicated. Yet, I think Applesauce Grilled Chicken is by far a very easy chicken recipe that I have made apart from Instant Pot Chicken Breast. Also, you only need a few basic ingredients for this recipe. Now, ain’t that simply amazing?
Hence, I am sure thinking of making Applesauce Grilled Chicken twice or thrice a month because it got a thumbs up from my boys as well. In addition to the subtle flavor of apple sauce, I love how chicken infuses it all. Therefore, when you lastly assemble it up that’s when the literal “riot” happens.
Now that’s further great with cleanly produced Applesauce from North Coast. Using freshly pressed, 100% organic certified USA-grown apples, North Coast applesauce is Non-GMO project verified, BPA-free certified and KSA kosher certified. It contains no added sugar or preservatives. Their applesauce comes in cups, jars and even convenient pouches, which are perfect for school lunch boxes or for a healthy snack on the go.
Tips for making chicken more amazing at home:
Along with applesauce, you can also add barbecue sauce while making the wet mix. Because, it would hit the right spiciness for chicken.
Since applesauce is slightly sweet and sour, it perks up the flavors of the chicken by manifold.
Use the most basic spices like chili powder, nutmeg powder and ground pepper as they do not overtake the taste and texture of the sauces.
Most importantly, allow the wet sauces, spices and chicken to cook well together. Don’t rush.
Not too oily or soggy, this apple-bbq-licious chicken hits your palate with a grilled extravaganza. Seems like the idea of using olive oil for this dish absolutely makes sense and perks up the taste. Therefore, crossing off all the other oils from the mind.
