Creamy Apple Chicken

chicken recipe

Warm meal for a cold day. Home cooked deliciousness! 

I'm sure there are ways you could reduce the fat in this but it's sooooo tasty all fatty! I thickened up the sauce a bit more by mashing some butter with flour and adding to the sauce (I believe it's called a 'rue'?) and it gave it some extra buttery goodness, mmm.

I would add more than a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to this, definitely add to taste to kick it up a notch!








Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced
  • ¼ cup butter (or coconut oil)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg


Directions:
  • Pan fry chicken in half of the butter until just no longer pink in the middle, turning once to ensure both sides are browned.
  • Remove chicken from pan and keep in a warm place or cover with foil.
  • Core and slice apples as desired.
  • Add the remainder of the butter, apples, and thyme and cook apples until they are as crisp or tender s you like.
  • Pour apples over chicken and keep warm.
  • Deglaze the pan with wine, cider or juice scraping all the yummy bits off the bottom.
  • Add the cream (sour cream, greek yogurt or full fat cream) and cook until slightly thickened.
  • Return the chicken and apple mixture to the pan to warm. Serve over rice or scalloped potatoes.
