Apple chicken recipe
It must be something of the crisis, but lately I have noticed that chicken is a recurring ingredient in our recipes. Fortunately, it is a meat that can be prepared in many different ways, even when accompanied by the same ingredients, its flavor changes a lot depending on the cooking method we choose.
For example, it might seem like my partner Juana Trujillo's apple parsley chicken and my apple chicken recipe are pretty much the same, but they really only look alike in name.
Ingredients for 4 people
4 chicken hindquarters, 2 or 3 apples, 3 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, oil, salt and a mix of peppers.
Making apple chicken
Actually, the one who this apple chicken looks a lot like is the mustard chicken since, although the latter has a much more intense and marked flavor, the way to prepare them is practically identical.
First we peel and chop the apples, I have used the Fuji variety because I like its flavor, you can use the variety that you like the most. Then we crush it well in the blender and add three teaspoons of Dijon mustard, a little salt and pepper to taste. We stir well until a homogeneous mixture is formed and we reserve.
With the sauce ready, it's time to put the chicken in the oven. To do this, we place it on a suitable tray along with the potatoes that will serve as a garnish. Season well and put the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes at 225º. If you like the chicken better done or are large pieces, better than 30 minutes.
After 25 minutes we remove the chicken from the oven and spread it well with the apple sauce that we have prepared before. Do not skimp on sauce, as it is the one that will give the special touch by impregnating the meat with its sweet flavor.
Finally, we put the chicken back in the oven for at least another 25 minutes and we have our apple chicken ready to serve. You can decorate the plate with some peppercorns or also with some sprigs of mint.
