I have almost the same recipe from my local grocery store. Instead of the cider I made it with 1 cup apple juice and 1 cup white wine. Delicious.

I changed this quite abit, but it was still very good. I didn't have apple cider, so i used a cup of white wine and a cup of chicken broth. Then I added a minced onion and clove of garlic to the reduction. Instead of flour, I used cracker crumbs, which gave a very nice crust. the 450 oven was too fast for me, so I baked it at 375 for about 40 minutes. Other then that, it was just like written. Oh, I served it with rice and peas, and a side salad.
