I'm Tess and tonight I will show you how to make a simple and healthy dinner Oven baked chicken with sauerkraut
Stay tuned Sauerkraut is very healthy for you It is a fermented cabbage that is rich in probiotics It helps boost the immune system, aids in digestion plus a lot of other health benefits My family used to make sauerkraut by the big crock fulls
We just love it and there are a lot of dishes that you can make with sauerkraut and this is one of them So let's get started Some sauerkraut brands can be very salty Mine was so I rinsed and drained the sauerkraut before putting in my baking dish I have my oven preheating to 375 degrees
And by the way, you can find this recipe and the list of ingredients in the description box below I'm adding in some sliced onions, some baby carrots and one granny smith apple The apple will break down and add some sweetness which is a nice contrast to the sauerkraut You can use any apple that you have on hand I'm not adding any salt because of the sauerkraut and in goes some black pepper
and a little celery seed and that's it! Giving everything a good mix Tonight I'm using bone-in chicken thighs that I've taken off the skin and trimmed You can leave the skin on but tonight I am making a healthier choice Placing the chicken on top of the sauerkraut covering and baking at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and then we will come back It's been 30 minutes and the kitchen is really smelling good! Removing the chicken from the oven, giving it a flip, recovering and back in the oven for another 30 minutes It's been 30 minutes and the chicken is done! I'm letting it rest for 10 minutes before serving I usually make mashed potatoes with this dinner but tonight I'm serving with baked potatoes
I just love all the flavors in this rustic and basic dish very comforting You can see there's not much liquid or broth
If you wish you could add about a half a cup of water or chicken broth You can even cut up the potatoes and let them cook in the baking panit's all good! I hope you give this easy one-pot chicken meal a try
