Apple Cider Chicken

Fresh apples and apple cider add a fall feel to to this quick chicken sauté. Make it a meal: Serve with sautéed broccoli rabe and quick-cooking barley.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (1-1 1/4 pounds total)
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sear until well browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add apples, shallots and thyme. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cider and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Return chicken and juices to pan; reduce heat to low. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a warmed platter. Stir sour cream and parsley into sauce. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over chicken.
