Sweet Apple, Chicken & Coconut Saute

Sweet Apple, Chicken & Coconut Saute via Nutritionist in the Kitch

To be honest, when I started making this dish the other day I had no plan! I did not think it would end up being a blog-worthy recipe, but it ended up tasting so amazingly good and looking so pretty I just had to pull out the camera and snap some pictures so I could share it with you all!

I had just bought some perfectly ripe gala apples – you know, the crispy, juicy, crunchy, sweet and delicious ones – the epitome of what an apple should be! Every now and then I buy apples and they end up being a bit soft and mushy, and just don’t taste the greatest, it’s a big bummer, but these apples were just divine!

I decided to dice them up and toss them in a pan with a mix of diced chicken thighs and chicken breasts. The thighs are fattier so I didn’t have to use any oil in the pan, and the apples just cooked away with the chicken fat! It’s usually this time of year when I love adding sweet apples to a more savoury dish, and this combo of the chicken and apples worked really well!

While the apples and chicken were sautéing away, I chopped up some tomatoes and kale! Beautiful colours and more great nutrition to add to the dish!

For seasoning I kept it simple, a little onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, was all the dish really needed, and when I was in my pantry grabbing the spices, I spotted the shredded unsweetened coconut and pure maple syrup. I liked the idea of combining those flavours with what I already had going on in the pan, so in they went!

A weird combination, right?? But, the smell was so amazing as the coconut browned and toasted along with the rest of the ingredients …I figured, if it smelt that good, it had to taste delicious too! …
