This is one of my family's favorite meals! A wonderful combination of salty and sweet.

  • 2 lrg. apple, red, fresh, organic
  • 1 tsp. sage, dried, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, organic
  • 4 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/2 lbs. chicken thigh, skinless, organic, free-range
  • black pepper, ground, organic to taste

Preheat oven to 475°F.

Combine chopped apples, sage, cinnamon, nutmeg, chopped garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Toss well to coat. Spread apple mixture on a jelly roll pan coated with coconut oil.

Season chicken with remaining 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and a little pepper. Arrange on top of the apple mixture. Bake for 25 minutes, until chicken is done and apple is tender. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Partially mash apple mixture with a potato masher, and serve under the chicken.
