HOW TO MAKE CREAMY SPICED APPLE PECAN CHICKEN

I also love that this dish only requires ONE PAN. All the components are cooked in the same skillet. Making this dinner come together in about 20 minutes. I started off by combining a few spices together for a rub on the chicken while heating up my skillet.

These spices are a blend of cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Such a delicious compliment to the apples! You will sear the chicken on each side for a few minutes. It doesn’t necessarily have to cook all the way because you’ll throw it in the pan a bit later. Once the chicken is seared, set aside and cover with foil. Add the chopped pecans, apples, and crushed garlic.close This mixture will cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently and gathering up bits of the spices.
