Place chicken in a large baking dish. Place onion and appled over chicken.

In a small bowl, combine sherry and apple cider vinegar.

Mix well; pour over chicken.

Bake chicken, basting and turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 1 hour.

Granny Smiths are ideal cooking apples, but there are other varieties, such as Bonza and Braeburn, which are also good.

Sherry is a type of wine that has been fortified with brandy. Two basic types are dry, or Fino, which tastes dry and sweet, or Oloroso, which has a sweet taste.

I love the taste of apples in cooking, and this sounds great! Thx.
