A note about serious food allergies
Fall is a many-textured season, with a slight chill in the air and 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 impress 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. Tip: Having trouble cutting that wobbly sweet potato? Trim off 1/4" along its length and cut that section into 1/2" dice. Turn sweet potato onto its flat side. You now have a flat base to work from while you cut the remaining sweet potato.
