Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1/2 cup sauce)

Skinless, boneless chicken breasts are dressed up with a creamy, sweet-savory sauce. Don't be alarmed if the sauce sperates after you add the apples and half-and-half; it will become smooth as it simmers.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt, thyme, and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Add cider to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 5 minutes).

Step 3

Add sliced apple and half-and-half; simmer over low heat 10 minutes or until sauce thickens and apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Serve sauce with chicken immediately.

This was a good way to use up the extra apples we had. The apples taste nice with the chicken. There's plenty of sauce (no need to double, even if using extra chicken). The sauce is fairly thin.

You can eat this sauce by the spoonful! Like a creamy, milk-infused hot cider. The savory chicken and sweet apple were great, with a nice woodsy note from the thyme. Would cook longer, as the sauce was a little thing, and maybe spice the apples a bit.
