WOW! This is not the same old chicken! Only 6 ingredients your family- kids included- will love this and your guests will think you are the MOST amazing chef! winonaradiocom.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pan fry chicken in half of the butter just until no longer pink in the middle, turning once to ensure both sides are browned.
  2. Remove chicken from pan and keep in a warm place or cover with foil.
  3. Core and slice apples as desired. I like to use my apple slicer- looks like a wagon wheel with handles- and then slice each lengthwise to make them thinner. To peel or not to peel- hehehehe- up to you. Likewise, red or green- the choice is yours. I like peel on and red for color!
  4. Add the rest of the butter, apples and thyme and fry until apples are as crisp or tender as you like.
  5. Pour apples over chicken and keep warm.
  6. Deglaze the pan with wine, cider or juice scraping all the yummy bits off the bottom.
  7. Add the cream- could use reduced fat sour cream or reduced fat or nonfat yogurt to reduce fat/calories. Yogurt will and a nice ‘tang’ to the sauce.
  8. Cook until slightly thickened.
  9. Return the chicken and apple mixture to the pan to make sure apples and chicken are nice and warm.
  10. When you are satisfied with the temperature of the dish, serve and enjoy!
  11. Experiment with your favorite herbs and seasonings- I have not tried this but I think a pinch of cinnamon might be really yummy here or maybe some nutmeg -- hmm --.
  12. Let me know what you think.

I give this a huge 5 stars! My husband said 4 because he thinks it needs garlic. Boy, have I raised him well! Yep, I will add fresh smashed garlic next time but, this time I followed the recipe (not something I am known to do) and I loved it! Almost wish I had doubled the sauce to use on the polenta I served with this wonderful chicken. Thank you for such a great recipe!

This was SO SO SO delicious! My husband is in LOVE!!! <br/><br/>I cooked apples and chicken together as suggested, also cut the chicken into chunks just to make it easier to eat. I used 1 1/2 apples also because I love apples!! Used Cinnamon instead of thyme as the others suggested. <br/><br/>For some reason the sauce wouldn't thicken for me though? I tried it three different ways twice with yogurt, once with sour cream. The sour cream one turned out better and at leased thickened a little. I served over rice with green beans and corn on the cob. Will definitely be repeating this recipe in the future!
