Autumn is when we start craving those hearty comfort foods, but it's also a great time to try out some healthy chicken bakes and experiment with seasonal ingredients (our favorite is the Apple Pecan and Feta Salad with Honey Apple Dressing - it's even healthy). Try these at your next fall party or family meal.
