Let's get to cooking!

Apple Cider Braised Chicken (serves 4)
  • 4 chicken quarters, with skin
  • 1/4 cup WEDO banana flour (to coat chicken)
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 green apples, sliced
  • 3 russet potatoes, diced
  • seasoning blend (2 teaspoons ground sage, 2 teaspoons paprika, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon sea salt)
  • avocado oil, or coconut oil, to grease pan
  • fresh sage leaves, to garnish
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken with seasoning blend. Lightly coat in banana flour. 

Heat avocado oil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in chicken quarters and fry on each side for about 5 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown. Remove chicken from dutch oven and set aside.

Add onions to the dutch oven and saute until translucent, for about 4 minutes. Add in garlic and continue sauteing for about 3 minutes. Now add in the green apples, and russet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the apples and potatoes are slightly softened. Pour in apple cider, and let come to a boil, whisking continuously. Season with salt and pepper. Finally, add chicken quarters back into the pan. Cover with lid and place in oven for 4 hours.

Serve over gluten-free pasta and enjoy!!
