Roasted Apple Chicken Thighs

This is a pretty easy dish that comes together quickly.  I chose to de-bone the thighs because they would cook quicker (it’s pretty simple if you’ve never done it – youtube has plenty of videos).


  • 8 chicken thighs, deboned and skinned
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1tb butter
  • 1tb olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5c apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 475F.
  2. Rinse chicken, remove any excess fat.  Pat dry, then season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a dutch oven or large, oven proof skillet over medium high heat.  When the pan is hot, add the butter and olive oil.
  4. When the oil and butter are hot, add the chicken.  You may have to do two batches in order to avoid over-crowding your pan.  chicken should not touch.  Let the chicken cook until they release from the skillet or until nicely browned.  Then flip and do the same on the other side.
  5. Remove chicken.  In remaining fat, cook the garlic until fragrant – about 30 seconds.
  6. Stir in apples.  Add more fat if necessary to prevent scorching.
  7. Sprinkle seasoning on the apples.  Stir to coat and combine.
  8. Add chicken back in, on top of the apples.  Cover with lid, or a layer of aluminum foil.
  9. Place in oven and bake about 20 minutes, or until chicken is done.
