Apple Cider Chicken

MMM....tis the season for apples. They are SOOO crisp and good right now. If you are not making some recipes with apples, please start! I would make this recipe as well as Apple Strudel in Phyllo Dough for dessert...mmm! Okay, maybe not in the same meal, that is a lot of apple-ness! Anyway, this was a great, simple dish that is not too filling. Sometimes after I eat I feel like I am going to EXPLODE! This is not one of those meals, which is nice every once in a while. I suggest eating a piece of apple in every bite that you take. The juices that they apple absorbs make this dish much more flavorful. My hubby is not a chunk person, so he just put the sauce over the top with no apples. He still enjoyed the meal, but I know it didn't taste as good my my chunky bites! hehe! Thanks for a keeper, Ash!

From: Ashley Wray

3/4 T olive oil
1/2 t minced garlic
4 boneless chicken breasts
2 apples, peeled and diced (I used gala)
3/4 C apple juice
1 1/2 T butter

Slice your chicken breasts in half horizontally to create thinner breasts. Heat olive oil in pan on medium heat, add garlic. Cook until translucent. Add chicken breasts. Cook on for about 5 minutes, then flip the chicken and cook another 2 minutes. Add apples and saute for 2 minutes. Add apple juice and reduce liquid by half, this will take about 7 minutes.
Mix in butter and salt and pepper to taste. remove chicken, pour sauce over and serve over rice! Enjoy!
