One-Pot Meals: How to Make Easy Chicken With Apples, Onions & Garlic!

Fruit pairs so well with poultry and pork. In this one-pot recipe, apples, garlic and onions team up with chicken to create an easy, hearty meal. The apple jelly glaze is optional, but adds even more sweetness and makes the chicken shine. 

You'll need:

  • 6 - 8 bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs
  • 2 apples, cut in wedges
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • fresh thyme or rosemary, chopped
  • apple jelly (optional)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the chicken in an ovenproof skillet or baking pan (cast iron works well). Top with the apples, onions and garlic. 
  2. Pour the wine or chicken broth and apple cider over the top. Sprinkle with chopped thyme and/or rosemary.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven about 40-45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. If desired, brush the chicken with a little apple jelly during the last 20 minutes of baking. 

Note: You could use boneless chicken, just reduce the cooking time.

I've done something similar with pork loin but this sounds even better! (I think I would be tempted to try that white wine jelly in this ;) And I would personally add sweet potatoes and fresh green beans to the mix. Good thing I just got my new, bigger pot!

That chocolate wine jelly you gave me was amazing. Still have a little left. Where did you get it?? Candy Stephens

I make a recipe similar to this but never thought of using apple jelly to glaze. That would not only make it sweeter, but help it get caramelized and crispy. Appreciate the new technique.

You're welcome, LeslieM. ! Welcome to the tribe! The apple jelly does make it brown up a lot more. Sticky, sweet and mmm!
