Preparation

1
Here are recent posts to the rfcj ng ...
2
Apples and green herbs figure into many Rosh Hashanna menus as apples represent sweetness and herbs represent growth and renewal.
3
Put the garlic cloves in the food processor and mince. Add the herbs and pulse the machine, stopping to scrape down the sides until the herbs begin to form into a ball.
4
Make the marinade: Combine the vinegar, oil, and brown sugar in a bowl and whisk until emulsified.
5
Peel and core the apples and cut each into eight wedges. Lay the apples along the bottom of a pan large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer.
6
Lay the chicken pieces, skin side up, over the apples and prick each piece in a couple of places with a fork. Using your hands, pat the herb mixture over the chicken, forming a crust. Pour the marinade very, very slowly over the chicken, taking care not to dislodge the herb crust.
7
Cover the pan with foil and marinate overnight.
8
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
9
Bake the chicken for 1 hour, basting occasionally, until chicken is cooked through.
