2 1/2 to 3 lb. chicken, cut up
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 chicken bouillon cube
1/2 c. boiling water
1/2 c. apple juice
2 c. sliced fresh green beans, French
1 c. diced peeled apples
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken on a rack in
a shallow open roasting pan. Bake in hot oven (450 degrees) until browned, about
20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Remove chicken and rack;
pour off any fat from pan.
Return chicken to pan. Dissolve bouillon in boiling water. Pour over chicken
along with apple juice. Stir in green beans. Cover and bake 25 minutes. Stir in
apple. Cover and bake 10 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan mix flour with cinnamon. Blend with 1 tablespoon of
cold water. Stir in hot pan liquid. Cook and stir until mixture boils and
thickens slightly. Serve with chicken and vegetables.
