Recipe Ingredients for Saute of Chicken with Apples and Leeks

1 1/4 pound boneless chicken breasts, skinless (4 halves)
3 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 cups leeks, white parts only cut into julienne strips (2 large)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (2 teaspoons fresh, minced)
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 med Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Saute of Chicken with Apples and Leeks

  1. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Using rolling pin or a small heavy pot pound them to a thickness of 1/2-inch.

  2. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook until browned on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

  3. Reduce the heat to low. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and leeks. Cook, stirring, until the leeks are soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, sugar and rosemary and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes more. Increase the heat to medium-high, stir in vinegar and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  4. Add apples and broth and cook, stirring once or twice, until the apples are tender, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and return the chicken and any juices to the pan. Simmer gently until the chicken is heated through. Serve immediately.
