Best Braised Chicken in Apple Puree recipe. I know, chicken with apple puree, it does sound delicious and interesting.
We just went apple picking a weekend ago, so now we have so many apples to eat. Rodrigo loves apples. He eats around two apples a day.
I had some chicken thighs to make for dinner and I have a full bag of apples just staring at me. I normally add apple to my dish but I have never made an apple puree to go with my meat. So this was a first time and it’s going to be interesting to see my husband and Rodrigo’s reaction.
Well, it when well! We all enjoyed it and hobby and son when for seconds. I’m so happy when dinner goes well.
I can’t wait to see what I’m going to make tomorrow.
