This was a recipe I thought of while trying to figure out what to do with some apples that were getting too ripe. I love this recipe and I hope you do too!

  • Combine red wine vinegar and brown sugar in a saucepan; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved and mixture is slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir bacon until crisp, adding 3 dashes liquid smoke while cooking, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and drain bacon grease.

  • Place potatoes, skin-side down, in a baking dish. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over potatoes and season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Mix apples and bacon into vinegar-brown sugar mixture; bring to a boil. Add garlic, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in the hot oil; cook for 7 minutes. Flip chicken;add water and a few shakes liquid smoke. Cover skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Place chicken on a serving plate and top with apple mixture. Arrange potatoes alongside chicken.

The chutney was amazing and went so well with the chicken. Not even sure it needed the bacon or as much of it though. My potatoes took a bit longer and I ended up putting them under the broiler to finish them. Actually added some Brussels sprouts too! It was a great all around meal. Read More

What a perfect flavor combination for last fall. We enjoyed the sweet and tangy flavors of the chutney although for our tastes I would add more apples or use less bacon. It was really good with the chicken but we wanted to have another flavor along with the salt and pepper. Perhaps some sage or pumpkin pie spice. Read More
