Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup apple jelly

6 small small tart baking apples, cored
1 (6 ounce) package long grain and wild rice blend
2 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 green onions, thinly sliced
sage leaves (optional)



Preheat oven to 325°F.

Skewer neck skin of chicken to back; tie legs to tail.

Twist wing tips under back.

Place chicken, breast side up, on a rack in roasting pan.

Sprinkle with salt.

Roast, uncovered, 1-1/4 hours.

Place apples around chicken.


Meanwhile, in 1-qt. casserole combine rice and seasoning mix, water, and butter; cover.

Set aside.

Brush chicken and apples with some of one portion of glaze.

Sprinkle with pepper.

Roast chicken and rice together in oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours more or until instant-read thermometer registers 180F when inserted into thickest part of the thigh and juices run clear, brushing with remainder of the glaze portion twice.
