Lovely dish! I used sweet onions and diced my chicken into fairly large pieces. I also left my apples un-peeled, and doubled the sauce to thicken into a gravy, which served nicely over rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat; season chicken breast with salt and pepper; brown chicken on both sides, about 3 minutes per side; remove chicken to plate and keep warm.
  2. Add apples and shallots to the skillet; cook until apples begin to soften, about 2 minutes; add thyme, salt and a generous grinding of pepper, cook 1 minute; Pour in chicken broth and cider and cook over high heat until the liquid has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  3. Return chicken breast to the skillet, nestling them in among the apples; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the middle, about 8 minutes.
