This one-pot dish is great for an easy weeknight meal. On a busy school night, I like to keep dinners simple. Since everything bakes in one dish, cleanup won’t take long. Plus, with the cooler temps, this cozy chicken and apple dish is ideal for fall.

The chicken marinates in apple cider, apple cider vinegar, and herbs, which give the dish a slightly sweet and sour taste. The Dijon mustard brushed on the chicken in the middle of baking adds to the flavor.

You can marinate the chicken for four hours or as long as overnight. So when it comes time to cook, all you have to do is put the chicken in a Pyrex and pour the marinade over it. Then slice the apples and cabbage, put them in the dish, and put the whole thing in the oven. Halfway through, you’ll brush the mustard on the chicken and continue to bake until fully cooked.

This dinner is pretty low in carbs since the only sugar is in the cider and apples. To finish off the meal, serve with a simple green salad or roasted broccoli.

Variations:

  • You can use any chicken parts you like that are on the bone with the skin off.
  • Swap the red cabbage out for white or napa cabbage.
