Oktoberfest Chicken and Red Cabbage

Tender chicken thighs are baked with red cabbage, bacon, and apple in a sweet and sour sauce for a German-inspired main dish just right for Oktoberfest.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place bacon in a large oven-safe or cast-iron skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes....
