Halloween may be behind us now, the stores might be putting out all of their Christmas decorations and I might be getting a little too eager to watch Elf, but fall is still in full swing. This chicken dish is the best way to celebrate that fact. This recipe just screams fall. The chicken is stuffed with apples, lemon and cinnamon, topped with bacon and then slow roasted in a bath of chicken broth and apple cider.
It is no secret that I prefer the dark meat of chicken. It’s just so much more tender than the breasts. Especially on roasted chicken. By the time that legs and thighs are done cooking, the breasts are dry. That used to be my problem anyway. Until I discovered that if you place bacon on the top of the chicken breast while the chicken is roasting, the bacon bastes the chicken as it is cooking. This results in one of the most moist chicken breasts I have ever eaten.
Help spread the word. You're awesome for doing it!
