Chicken

One Pan Chicken with Apple Stuffing

One pan recipes are all the rage right now

And why not??  Everything basically cooks together and there’s only one pan to clean up?  Sign me up!

I love this recipe because I was in the mood for chicken and stuffing but didn’t feel like going through all of the effort

Rather than a whole chicken, I used parts and instead of having to make a stuffing ahead of time to put in the bird, all of the ingredients go right onto a sheet pan

Easy peasy

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

Cut about 6 cups of crusty bread into 1″ cubes.  You can use whatever bread you prefer, seeded or not

Then we’ll need 2 cups of apples, 2 cups of celery, one small onion and 3 tablespoons of fresh sage

Dice the apples, onion and celery and mince the sage

Arrange on a sheet pan and drizzle with about two tablespoons of olive oil and a sprinkle of kosher salt & black pepper

Place the “stuffing” in the oven for about 15 minutes to soften the apples and celery and to toast the bread a bit

The smell of the sage and toasty bread reminds me of Thanksgiving… mmm…

I have 3 pounds of chicken legs and thighs, trimmed of excess fat.  You can remove all of the skin if you’d prefer, but I like the crispy skin and the flavor it gives to the bread “stuffing”

Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and some paprika to add smokiness

Place the chicken parts evenly on top of the stuffing mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes

The internal temperature of the chicken should register 165-170

Remove from the oven and let rest for at least 10 minutes

Sprinkle with finely minced fresh parsley for serving

So many delicious flavors all on one pan!
