  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Heat oil in ovenproof baking dish and brown chicken on one side.
  • Turn over and while browning the second side, place sage, thyme, salt and pepper on each piece.
  • Spoon one tablespoon apple butter on each, and pour wine over so it is sitting in about 1/4" of wine (drink the rest).
  • Cover and bake in oven for about 45-60 minutes.
  • Remove chicken, leaving the applesauce and wine.
  • Reduce sauce (simmer until thick and creamy).
  • Drizzle over chicken, serve over rice or pasta.

    Yummy chicken! I used boneless, skinless chicken breast. Loved the combination of spices. My apple butter stayed on top of the chicken which only needed to be baked for about 30 minutes. So I poured off the white wine into a pan, added a few more tablespoons of apple butter and made the sauce like that. It was delicious. Did I mention it was really easy? Thanks for the really tasty recipe!

    I had 3 large chicken breasts in the refrigerator that I used for this recipe instead of the 8 chicken pieces. The apple butter I used was sweeter than I had hoped it would be but the sauce still had a great flavor. Instead of rice or noodles I served with mashed potatoes but brown rice would be very nice with this chicken. Would like to try this again using a tarter apple butter and boneless chicken breast. Thank you TraceyMae! Made and reviewed for the Australia/New Zealand Forum's Recipe Swap #24.

    Superb combination of flavors. I had some leftover supermarket chicken and realized this would be fabulous for it. Rather than baking it, i put all the sauce ingredients together in a pan and heated them then added the cooked chicken pieces. YUM. I will make this often. The wine cuts the sweetness of the apple butter while letting all the flavors shine.

    A great recipe, & even though I used white grape juice instead of white wine, along with chicken breasts, it turned out wonderfully for us! Oh, yes, I also added a couple of extra tablespoons of the apple butter! A very nice change of pace for chicken! many thanks!

<p>I love to cook. I love trying new recipes, especially when there is a picture. And I really enjoy reading cookbooks. <br /><br />As a child, I wasn't very good at cooking and always wanted to follow the recipe exactly. That way, if it didn't turn out right, I could blame the recipe! <br /><br />Over time, I have become more experimental. Brave even! <br /><br />I have three children: Shannon is 28, Casey is 26 and Joshua is 19. My DH Jack cheers me on when I try something new. He is my best friend and partner. I am a new grandmother, my grandson's name is Jayce and he's a delight! Plus, I'm going to be a grandmother again - with a granddaughter.<br /><br /><a href=http://s163.photobucket.com/albums/t294/TraceyMae_photos/?action=view?t=100_2166.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t294/TraceyMae_photos/100_2166.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><a href=http://s163.photobucket.com/albums/t294/TraceyMae_photos/?action=view?t=100_1401-1.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t294/TraceyMae_photos/100_1401-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />My favorite cookbook is The Dessert Lover's Cookbook. Beautiful pictures, easy instructions. <br /><br />I was born in New Jersey and have lived in Hawaii, Australia, Chicago, Iran, Florida and now living happily in sunny California.</p>
