A note about serious food allergies

Fall is a many-textured season, with the slight chill to the air and the trees shedding their foliage into a beautiful reddish orange blanket for the earth. But nothing speaks to the fall spirit like apples, and specifically apple cider, warm or cold. This dinner will blanket you with its delightful "fall" flavor, a sauce that combines apple cider with sweet honey and tangy mustard perfectly combining with succulent chicken. Sweet potatoes make for that perfect fall side, filling us up for the cold winter to come.
