Maple Glazed Chicken

Easy and delicious!  I love the combination of the chicken with the apples and red onion, glazed with the sweet and tangy mixture of maple and vinegar.  Great flavors in this dish!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-6 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
-salt
-1 red apple, cored and cut into wedges
-1 green apple, cored and cut into wedges
-1 red onion, cut into small wedges
-1 tsp rubbed dry sage
-1/2 cup chicken broth
-1/4 cup pure maple syrup
-1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Directions:
Heat oil in large skillet.  
Cut each thigh in half and pat dry.  Season well with salt.  Add to the hot oil, skin side down, and cook for about 5 minutes (until skin is browned and crisp).
Flip the chicken on the other side, and add the apples, onion and sage.  Reduce heat and cook for 5 more minutes.
Remove the chicken from the skillet.  Continue cooking the apples and onions for about 2 more minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the broth, syrup, vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt.  Pour over apple mixture and give it a good stir.  Bring to a boil and cook until the glaze reduces a little (about 3 minutes).
Return the chicken (and juices) to the skillet, turn to coat and cook for about 5 more minutes.  Enjoy!
