2 pounds skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts, cut into large chunks
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 apples (1 red, 1 green), cored and cut into wedges
8 medium shallots, quartered lengthwise
1/4 cup fresh sage, torn
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Pat the chicken dry and season all over with salt. Heat a large heavy skillet over high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken skin-side down and cook, undisturbed, until the skin is browned and crisp, about 5 minutes.
Turn the chicken and add the apples, shallots and sage to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium high and cook until the chicken is browned on the bottom, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and continue to cook the apples and shallots, stirring, until golden, about 2 more minutes.
Meanwhile, make the glaze: Mix the chicken broth, maple syrup, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the skillet with the apples and shallots and boil until reduced by about three-quarters, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet, turning to coat, until cooked through, about 2 more minutes.

This week I want to post recipes. I think that the amount times I need a recipe and I don't have one, I want to have a recourse and a place to post these. These are some of my favorite recipes. I don't care if you guys don't want to read these. I want them for my later use. Here we go.
Time is something that can be taken
Wasted like water in a shower
Life would be over
Time is the reason we are alive.
It is time it's self that makes the world.
If time is what makes us,
What makes time tick
The clock is ticking.
I am scared.
The class is ending.
I am scared.
I am not scared for a test.
I am not scared for a grade.
I am not scared for a meeting.
I am scared for going home.
I like school and my friends.
I miss the fun I have.
I get bored.
What is there to do.
I think that I like school more than my own
It burns but tastes good.
That reminds me of a lot.
It has all the ingredients
It has the meat
and the broth.
It is the making for the perfect life.
It can burn you,
but if you have the sweet and the sour,
it can make a happy life.
You can make an igloo.
You can sled.
You can ride a bike.
You can fly.
Why let it stop you.
Why let the elements stop you.
I hate the snow
to be honest.
I hate how it slows you down.
Why is snow worse than rain.
Worse than heat.
Worse than leaves?
This week I want to write 5 poems. One for everyday that i must write. I am excited because of what I am going to write about. I am going to try to write about nature and my thoughts on the day. I am going to write one now.
20% of my mind feels like mush.
It only feels like that when I am in Bio.
It is not that I don't care.
It is not that I don't like it.
I am just tiered of the same old,
I have how I don't understand.
It makes me angry.
But nothing works.
I try hard and I don't get a good grade. Fine.
When I go and meet with the teachers for help and they say no. Not ok.
It is there job to help. I know it may not be the best time always,
but you can say maybe later.
I know you may be busy but I need help.
It may sound bad but I care as much as you do and i am trying to
