Chicken with Apples & Almonds

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items. 

For the first time in like forever, I didn't have to cook one dinner this week. Mariah's still away in college, Allison has been eating dinner at her friend's house, and Jason left for Atlanta on Monday. It's just been little old me home alone all week. While the proper side of me misses my family a bit, the other side has been loving my alone time. Do you guys know how clean the house has stayed this week? I haven't had to empty the dishwasher, clean up spills and crumbs, and only had one load of laundry to run. I had so much free time today, I almost didn't know what to do with myself. But, now Jason is home, Allison is back in her room being a moody teen, and Mariah will be home in 3 weeks so it's back to the normal grind around here. Before Jason left, I made him a healthy home cooked meal of Chicken with Apples & Almonds from Golden Blossom Honey because I knew he probably wouldn't be eating properly on his business trip. I mean, when you get to travel to Atlanta, you take advantage of the amazing restaurants they have there, right? Right! 

Chicken with Apples & Almonds

This dish offers both sweet and savory flavors, and with the added almonds, each bite has a wonderful texture. It is also high in protein, low in fat, so it was a great meal to serve before sending my husband out the door since he stayed full on his flight without feeling bloated or weighed down. Grab the recipe for an easy meal solution, or keep it on hand for when you need something to impress your dinner guests. 

1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 whole chicken breasts, boned, skinned and halved
1 medium onion, sliced
2 large MacIntosh apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup slivered almonds
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt

Do you still cook dinner when it's just for you?


  1. Did Jason bring us something from Atlanta? :)
    I cook plain rubbish for myself exactly because I have no one else to cook for. When it is like that you just don't care any more and you eat just mashed potatoes for lunch with nothing else or some soup :)
    I wish sprouts weren't forbidden for my tummy!

    1. Just dirty laundry :(

      I was guilty of making a batch of mashed potatoes for myself for dinner this week. Though, I did have a few salads and vegan chicken sandwiches, so I wasn't totally bad on my diet. How was your birthday, dahlink?

    2. You did not give him pocket money for presents :P
      What is vegan chicken? Chicken fed on veggies? :)

      Birthday was Shitty McWitty as always, probably more depressive than usual so I worked all day long not to think about it. I did sleep very bad though as if even my dreams were depressed LOL That day is just always black, gloomy and bleak for me.

  2. Your recipe looks delicious! I love paprika on chicken. Adding apples, cinnamon and honey will give it a sweet kick, which is awesome!

  3. I can definitely see how that would be good.

  4. Things I eat at my sea, a win indeed. Having that alone time can be sooooo nice indeed. Things do stay far cleaner when by one's self.

  5. This looks so good and sounds delish! I love cooking with honey to make sweet and savory dinner combos!

  6. I love those moments of calm in the house, but do appreciate when they family's all home. Celebrating being back together with this yummy, sweet chicken dish sounds lovely.

  7. This looks great! We cook most of our meals. When it's just me...I still cook. I can always use the leftovers for another meal.

  8. Define "cooK" when it comes to single-meals

  9. A short amount of time alone is refreshing. :) This is a good meal to make for a send-off. You really don't want to be hungry on a flight, but you definitely don't want to be overstuffed either. Hope he had a good trip and did get a chance to sightsee a bit. :)

  10. wow..look super yum, Theresa. And I bet honey bring extra flavor to the chicken
