Chicken with Apples and Cider Sauce Recipe

By Cindy Riley

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 4 to 6 oz. each

  • salt to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • flour for dredging

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

  • 1/3 cup apple cider

  • 2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup non-fat sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet. While the oil is heating, season the chicken with salt and pepper and dredge it in flour.

  2. Sauté the chicken over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken to a platter and keep warm.

  3. Add the apples and apple cider, stir with a wooden spoon to release any caramelized bits that may be stuck to the pan and cook until the cider has reduced by half.

  4. Add the chicken broth, chicken and any juices that have accumulated on the platter. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. 5. Remove the chicken to a clean serving platter and keep warm. Simmer the broth mixture until it has reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the sour cream and stir until it is thoroughly combined. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
