I usually make pork with apples, but this looks delicious, too! Ingredients: 2 apples, preferably Braeburn, peeled and thinly sliced 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 3 teaspoons unsalted butter, divided 1 1/8 teaspoons herbes de Provence, divided 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest Preparation: Toss apple slices with lemon juice and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm. Mix 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence, salt and pepper. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or the bottom of a small saucepan to a 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the seasoning mixture. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and keep warm. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the pan; heat over high heat. Cook the remaining chicken in the same manner. Add broth, lemon zest, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon herbes and any accumulated juices from the chicken to the pan. Cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve with the sautéed apples. Recipe and photo via eatingwell.com
I am a sucker for pork chops and apple sauce, so this sounds like something I could really enjoy!
I like spiced apples by themselves, but I'm sure they'll be delicious with chicken too!
I usually make more apples so I have leftovers. Mix them with oatmeal for breakfast!
