Apple capsicum chicken

We started liking brown rice after having it prepared by our friend Uma. After that I too bought a pack of brown rice and trying some new recipes. Brown rice cooked with rice is served as a  side in this recipe.  This chicken recipe is my very own creation. This is a less spicy version of chicken. The green apple makes the dish more tangy and delicious. Feel free to make this with any apple and vary the spice level as per taste.

Cut the chicken white meat into small pieces.
Marinate with everything above for 1 - 2 hours.

Coat a baking tray with olive oil and spread the marinated pieces.

Switch off, keep the baked chicken in an airtight container or just fold the aluminum foil to keep the moisture of the chicken (otherwise it gets dry).
