Rosemary-Roasted Chicken with Apples and Potatoes

Rated as 4.78 out of 5 Stars

"The beginning of fall comes with an abundance of apples, which means it's time to start baking! But more than pies, apples roast extremely well with chicken! This dish makes a fantastic sweater-weather meal, with beautifully roasted chicken and an apple, potato, and onion bake that takes advantage of the delicious roasted chicken drippings."

  4. Drizzle olive oil over chicken thighs. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, salt, and pepper. Rub olive oil and spices thoroughly all over each thigh and place on the top part of the broiler pan.
  5. Roast in the preheated oven until juices run clear and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 1 hour. Serve apples, potatoes, and onion alongside chicken thighs.

I made this pretty much as directed. I used 4 thighs, one apple, one onion, and one large potato. (I cook for two.) Next time I will use two apples. I also used brown sugar, instead of white. I ...

I tried this fall recipe on the first major snow fall of the year. We all loved it. The chicken had a lovely flavour of rosemary with a hint of the apple cooking below it. It was as good or b...

Great flavor! Instead of roasting, we did the potatoes, onions and apples in a skillet. Grilled the chicken and then combined!

It was excellent; however, it was more than my husband and I could in in 3 meals. Next time I will 1/2 the portions.

Excellent blend of flavors, I will definitely be making this again

A delicious recipe. The combination of potatoes, onions and apples was fabulous. I followed the recipe except baked it in a covered roasting pan instead of on a broiler. Simple and scrumptuous!

I will definitely make AGAIN!!! My "squirrels" grandgirls who are very picky-eaters LOVED this dish and beg me to make again SOON and I plan to do just that. I did not make any changes; great ju...
