Baked Chicken and Pink Lady Apples


I was catching up with an old friend over lunch. It lasted several hours! One of the things we discussed were relationship issues. When you have passed several tens age-wise, you just want things to be laid down for you - no games.

Baked Chicken and Pink Lady Apples

So, I'm going to lay it down for you straight. Our stomach's relationship with apples and onions can sometimes get rough. If you're susceptible to stomach bloating, then eat this in moderation.

Onions and apples are said to be gassy food. The effects are less when cooked. Still, it doesn't mean we should over-indulge ...unless it's chocolate. Then I say bring the wine out too and let's toast to a great year ahead.

I wanted to keep the flavours as natural as possible so the seasoning was kept to a minimal. The end result is a wholesome blend of onion and apple gravy, with yummy chicken juices.

Baked Chicken and Pink Lady Apples
Ingredients:
- 2 whole chicken leg
- 5 Pink Lady apples (wash thoroughly, slice and soak in water, with lemon juice drizzled over)
- 2 large onions (sliced)
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 3 to 4 tbsp water
- Fresh coriander for garnishing (optional)

1) Marinate chicken.
2) Slice apples, soak in lemon water.
3) Arrange apples and onions on baking tray.
4) Bake!

How-to:

1) Rub chicken with balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and ginger. Leave aside.
2) Arrange slices of onions and apples on a baking tray. Add a bit of water.
3) Place chicken on top.
4) Bake in a pre-heated oven for about 50 minutes at 170C, basting twice (after 30 minutes).
