1/4 cup grated or minced sweet onion
1 1oz packet dry ranch dressing powder
Salt and pepper
Assorted entertaining crackers for serving
Instructions
Preheat oven 375 degrees F.

Trim chicken breasts if needed, salt and pepper both sides. Place in a baking dish with apple wine/juice. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.

Bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is done at 165 degrees F.
