4 boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 firm apple, such as Braeburn, cored, halved, and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 cup apple juice
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard


Place each chicken-breast half between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound with a meat mallet until about 3/4 inch thick.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute the chicken until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Add the apple slices, apple juice, onion, garlic, thyme, and salt. Cover and simmer 6 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is fork-tender. Remove the chicken, apple slices, and onion to a serving platter and keep warm.

Bring the sauce to a boil for about 5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Whisk in the mustard. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.
