Chicken, Apple, and Cheese Casserole

Recipe for Chicken, Apple, and Cheese Casserole
Sam Jones/Quinn Brein


5 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3 medium-size apples, halved, cored, and sliced (3 cups)
2 large onions, thinly sliced (2 cups)
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons brandy or apple cider


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter.

Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and onions and saute until the apples are tender, about 10 minutes. Spoon into the baking dish.

Rub the chicken with the salt and pepper and arrange over the apple-onion mixture. Combine the cheeses with the bread crumbs and thyme and sprinkle the mixture over the chicken. Drizzle the brandy over the cheese. Bake for 40 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown and the chicken is done.

Why include the picture in the print window? Just wastes ink ... I really don't want it.
