Honey chicken legs & Homemade applesauce

My friend Molly was on Facebook this morning asking about applesauce. Immediately I wanted to make some. SO easy and delicious! Tonight's chicken is inspired by $5 dinners.

2 lbs chicken legs (I got them on sale for $0.91/lb!)
1/2 c honey
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp minced ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp minced garlic

Place chicken in a gallon bag. Whisk together honey, olive oil, ginger, cinnamon and garlic. Pour over chicken. Seal bag, and shake. Let sit in fridge for 30+ minutes (ours sat for two hours.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken in a baking dish, and pour whatever marinade remains in the bag over the chicken. Bake for one hour.

5 red apples
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 c water
cinnamon (optional)

Peel apples, remove core, and dice. Place into a slow cooker. Pour lemon juice and water over apples, and stir to coat. Add cinnamon as desired. Stir. Cover; cook on low 4-6 hours, until apples are very soft. Mash with a potato masher. Chill in refrigerator.

*I added too much water, so I used a slotted spoon to remove the apples, then mashed them in a separate dish. I've scaled down the amount of water here to what appears to be the correct amount. :)
