One-Pan Clean Apple Chicken

Okay. We all hate having to do 100 dishes when trying to make a nice dinner!

I found this recipe on IHeartNapTime and absolutely love the taste and the easy clean up!!


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound chicken breast, diced boneless, skinless

1 teaspoon salt divided

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

8 slices thick-cut bacon chopped (optional)

3 cups broccoli florets

1 medium sweet potato peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces

1 medium white onion chopped

2 granny smith apples cored, and diced

2 cloves of garlic minced

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup chicken stock divided


Heat the olive oil in a large, nonstick pan over medium high heat, until hot and shimmering.  Add the diced chicken, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper.  

Cook until lightly brown and cooked through.  

Transfer chicken to a plated lined with paper towels.

Reduce the pan heat to medium low.  

Add chopped bacon and cook until crisp and brown.

Resevere 1 1/2 tablespoons of bacon fat.  

Transfer bacon to the plate that the chicken is on using a slotted spoon.

Increase the heat back to medium high.  

Add broccoli, sweet potato, onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  

Cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the onion is translucent, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the apples, garlic, thyme, and cinnamon.  

Cook 1 minute, then pour in 1/2 cup of the chicken stock.  

Bring to a boil and cook until the stock has evaporated.  

Add the chicken and remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock.  

Cooked until heated through.

Then add the bacon and serve warm.
