Apple Cinnamon Glazed Chicken

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


If you love cinnamon, increase the amount of cinnamon in this recipe to one teaspoon. This delicious low fat entree is delicious served with grilled asparagus and French bread.

I currently do not have a grill, so I mixed the glaze exactly as directed and then put the chicken on a cookie sheet and baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I used chicken that was pre-cut into strips. It was delicious. I also made carrots with butter and brown sugar as a side dish - it complimented the chicken very well. I think a mildly flavored rice would also be a good side dish - maybe Rice Pilaf, something that won't overpower or cancel out the taste of the chicken?
