We love this recipe - it is one that I always pull out for a special (or not so special) occasion. I substitute onion for the apple and have used table/light cream if I don't have the whipping cream on hand. Turns out great both ways!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Flour and season the chicken breasts and saute in hot butter in both sides.
  2. When they are well browned, sprinkle with Drambuie, add the chicken stock, cover and simmer for ten minutes: remove to platter and keep warm.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, peel and core the apples.
  4. Cut them into thick slices and cook gently until tender in butter- avoid mashing.
  5. Make the sauce by adding a little more Drambuie to the stock left in the pan and gently stir in the cream.
  6. Heat just until hot (not boiling).
  7. Add the roasted flaked almonds.
  8. Cover the chicken with sauce and garnish with the sliced apple.
