This is one of those recipes that will make you go, “Ahhh, Fall!” So it’s perfect for right now.
- 4 chicken thighs, pounded thin
- 1/2 medium apple, diced very small (I used honey crisp)
- 2 T real maple syrup
- 1/4 cup shredded Dubliner cheese (can sub with white cheddar)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp all spice
- lard/bacon grease
- 1/2 cup unfiltered apple juice or cider
Mix together your apple, syrup, cheese, and spices. Even spread the mixture over your 4 chicken thighs that have been pounded thin.
Warm a cast iron or stainless steel skillet up with a couple tablespoons of lard/ bacon grease until nice and hot. Sear your chicken rolls for 2 minutes on each side. Pour in your apple juice/cider and cover with a lid for 10-12 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
I served ours with roasted cubes of sweet potatoes. It doesn’t get much more fall-like than this does it? These were coated in oil, seasoned with sea salt and paprika, and roasted in a 425 degree oven for 30 minutes.
I unfortunately don’t have a finished product picture of the chicken because my family devoured it! Even my daughter who normally turns her nose up to chicken asked for seconds.
