Recipe Ingredients for Chicken & Spiced Apples

2 apples
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 teaspoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Recipe Directions for Chicken & Spiced Apples

  1. Toss apple slices with lemon juice and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.

  2. Mix 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence, salt and pepper. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or the bottom of a small saucepan to a 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the seasoning mixture.

  3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and cook unitl no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and keep warm. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the pan; heat over high heat. Cook the remaining chicken in the same manner.

  4. Add broth, lemon zest, the remaining herbes and any accumulated juices from the chicken to the pan. Cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve with the sauteed apples.
