Savory Apple Recipes For Dinner

Sharing is caring!

Here are 10+ of the best Savory Apple Recipes for Dinner! Apples shine in sweets, but also steal the show when it comes to dinnertime. When paired with roasted meat, pureed into soups and sauces, and baked into side dishes, you’ll find there are unbelievable combinations of flavors when apples are included. Check out these incredibly delicious recipes next time you’re craving an apple-infused meal!

Fruit and Meat Pairings

When thinking of pairing meat and fruit together in a meal, you might initially think it’s uncommon. Or even a little weird. But once you start looking it’s really not hard to find!

To celebrate my 100th blog post, I created a fruit-centered dinner party consisting entirely of meals that included fruit. I didn’t realize just how much I used fruit in recipes until I took a step back!

Chicken and pineapple skewers, a mango-based marinade, chipotle lime chicken, and apple-roasted pork are just a few ideas that quickly come to mind if you’re looking for a good place to start.

This article from Spoon University is a tremendous resource when it comes to pairing meat with fruit and how to properly incorporate both into the same dish. I swear they have thought of EVERY possible combination and have helped get my creative juices flowing when planning future fruity recipes!

Some of my favorite combos from Spoon University are chicken with pomegranates, turkey with plums, pork with melon or persimmons, and beef with kiwi. I can’t wait to get in the kitchen – especially with pomegranate and persimmon season quickly approaching.

  2. Oh these recipes sound absolutely delicious! I used to really not like sweet and savoury pairings but I’ve grown to love them as an adult so these would be right up my street. I’m not vegan but actually the vegan curry appeals to me the most!

  3. Funny this came up in my Twitter links-was just thinking how good a chicken sheet pan dinner would be tonight. I have not thought much of cooking with apples beyond baking and apple sauce, but lots of great ideas here.
