Maple and Apple Baked Chicken

(modified slightly from a recipe at, including reviews)

4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb)
½ c sliced onions (red is best, but whatever you have)
2 red cooking apples, sliced
½ c maple or maple-flavored syrup
1/3 Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing (or whatever Italian dressing you have)

Heat oven to 350. Spray large ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Cook chicken in skillet over medium high heat three minutes on each side or until evenly browned. Remove from heat. Top chicken with onions and surround with apples. Mix syrup and dressing and pour over chicken. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is done and apples are tender. Drizzle with syrup mixture from bottom of skillet.

If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, cover the handle of your regular skillet (not electric) with several layers of foil before using as directed.

Substitute honey for the syrup and/or apple cider vinegar for the dressing.
