Maple-Baked Apple Chicken

With the temperature dropping along with the leaves, the cool crisp air put me in the mood for an autumn dinner.   One quick Google search with the key words, apple and chicken breast, in less than a minute I had a great new recipe for the family and all of you - MAPLE-BAKED APPLE CHICKEN, a recipe from Kraft.    

This dinner was simple to make and ready in about an hour.  It only calls for 5 ingredients - chicken breast, zesty Italian dressing, maple syrup, apples and onions.  I love when a recipe is simple, but still delivers on taste.  Kraft describes the chicken best, "Chicken breasts get a sweet and savory kick from apples, maple syrup and onions in this simple comfort food dish."
Here are some reviews on
"Even after reading all the reviews I still had my doubts. Well, the reviews were correct, this was one of the best chicken recipes I've ever made. Chicken was so moist, apples were tender and sweet. Everyone, including our 3 year old grandson loved it. Will be making this again, very soon!"
"Really yummy and easy. Great for fall/winter time!"
"So delicious and SO easy! You probably already have all of the ingredients for this and it tastes so yummy!! Be warned though - you probably need a bit of a sweet tooth to enjoy it!"
"I make this a lot. The whole family loves it. I am making this for dinner tonight along with some acorn squash. You can not go wrong with this recipe. Very Very good. Thanks Kraft."
 "This was amazing! My whole family, including husband and 3 kids ate it all up! Delicious!  And very easy to  make!"

I served mashed potatoes and mixed veggies with the chicken. The sauce from the chicken was wonderful on top of the potatoes.
