This Fall, I have been trying to cook more home-cooked meals for my little clan and eat-out less.  That’s tricky when I get slammed during the fall season with lots of sessions and orders but so far, I’ve done pretty well.  One of my fall favorites is Maple-Baked Apple Chicken.  Just saying the name makes me feel like I’m cooking a culinary masterpiece.  Best of all, it’s super easy & fast and my husband loves it.
