Preparation

Preheat oven to 475°.
Combine first 5 ingredients. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well to coat. Spread apple mixture on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper, and arrange on top of the apple mixture. Bake at 475° for 25 minutes or until chicken is done and apple is tender. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
Partially mash apple mixture with a potato masher, and serve with chicken. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

Qui’s Notes: The apples made this dish, so I would double the amount of apples (and corresponding spices) called for.

Also, I used season salt instead of salt and pepper to flavor the chicken and I us
