Ginger-Apple Chicken

So, for my first post with the new equipment... we had ginger-apple chicken tonight for dinner. I had a jar of apple jelly in the pantry, from some recipe that I ended up not making, and was t.i.r.e.d of looking at it. I went straight to google and ended up on a Better Homes and Gardens recipe that sounded... pretty good! I jazzed it up a little by adding some crushed red pepper. I reserved about half the mixture to glaze chicken as it grilled on my grillpan, and half for tossing the zucchini once they were sauteed. It was a nice twist... a little something different to do with chicken (which we eat all the time)!

In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup apple jelly; 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed; 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel; and 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger. Heat and stir just until jelly is melted. Makes 2/3 cup.

Yummy! I love this idea and I'm jealous you have good zuchinni. The ones at my grocery look like they were fed with water from a nuclear plant run off. :(

Katie - lol! Trust me, they don't always look that good. But they were on sale and were larger than normal so I grabbed some. :-)

I hadn't thought of pairing ginger with apple and chicken but this looks so good.
