Expert Tips

  • Mix it up! Sub pears for the apples and baby arugula for the spinach for a fun twist.
  • Chicken breasts can vary tremendously in size. For safety’s sake, test the internal temperature of the meat before serving. If chicken is not at least 165°F, continue to bake a few minutes longer.
