I don’t know if I’ve said this before (I repeat myself A LOT, in person and in writing), but my friend and I don’t usually have a lot of time to cook before TV starts at 8. On Thursdays. When we cook and then watch TV.
Most of the time we have to choose between slapping some pizza together or missing Community. Even though we can watch it later in the night, it’s still a goal to be done and eating for 8.
This past Thursday I found this quick and easy recipe for Maple-Glazed Chicken on the Food Network’s Site. But we still missed Community!
Basically, you follow the directions and get some yummy chicken and apples all nice and warm and in a bowl.
Unless you are Kerry and Jordan, in which case you cut a lot of corners and still get some yummy chicken with some mushy apples in a bowl.
Things we changed:
1) Regular salt was used, and sparingly.
2) We used boneless breasts instead of bone-in thigh or whatever it was supposed to be. I’m sorry, but you first want me to cut boned chicken into chunks and then eat around the bones? Just typing that was too much work.
3) We didn’t take the chicken out of the pan when we cooked the rest of it, which we maybe should have because it ended up a little bit dry.
4) We couldn’t find sage so we used basil. Aren’t all leafy green things basically the same anyway?
If I was to make this again it would not include apples in the finished product.
