2 Baked Apple Chicken

An apple a day keeps the Doctor away, so they say. And I've plenty from generous friends who visited my aunt, who has been staying with us for the past two weeks. Red scrumptious apples sure to delight even the fairest of them all, Snow White.

Snow White would fall for this - non poisonous!

Some were eaten raw and some I baked. It was hard to resist. I thought I could stay away from my oven but it was too convenient to ignore. While I stir-fry a dish of bitter gourd and cook the rice in one corner, the oven takes care of our meaty protein intake. How's that for a balanced diet?

I didn't plan very much on the hows of cooking this dish. Simplicity seemed best on this rainy day. I just added in whatever I thought would compliment the taste of apples and add to the juiciness. Hence, onions was a logical choice over garlic. 

I guess I could have added carrots if I felt I wanted some colour, but not today. This suits my mood!

Lightly sweet and savoury, this is a wholesome dish that's easy to make. Just three main ingredients and you're on your way.

Yum yum.. look at that juice

Oh, so tender - Onions, apples and chicken!

The rough guide.

- 4 pcs chicken drumstick
(slice 2 lines across like in the photo above - cooks faster and to get the juice in)
- 1 large onion (sliced thick)
- 2 red apples (remove skin, cut into cubes)
- 1/2 tsp red sugar
- A pinch of salt and pepper (or to taste)
- Coriander leaves for garnishing

1) Marinate chicken and apples with red sugar, salt and pepper for 5 minutes or so.
2) Preheat oven and line baking tray with foil.
3) Place marinated chicken and apples onto baking tray. Sprinkle onions on top. 
4) Cover with foil and bake for about an 1 hour 15 minutes at 230C, until the chicken is tender.
5) Remove from oven and be careful when lifting the foil open. Hot steam will gush out. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice.
