Apple Cider Chicken & Apples is the ultimate fall dish!  Think juicy chicken, tender apple slices, the crisp taste of apple cider……my mouth is watering just thinking about it 🙂  Your whole kitchen will smell like fall with this dish.  It’s a healthy and simple fall meal.

Start by heating a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the olive oil and onions and cook until soft and translucent.

Then add the chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the chicken is about 80% done.  You only want to cook the chicken about 80% of the way because it will continue to cook while you prepare the rest of the dish.  Make sure to stir frequently so all sides of the chicken heat evenly.

Add garlic to the skillet and cook for another minute.

In a small bowl, combine the apple cider and Dijon mustard.  I like to use fresh apple cider, not apple juice, because the flavors are more intense.  It’s almost like eating an apple right off the tree.  Add this mixture to the skillet with the chicken.  Turn the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes.  This is when the chicken will finish cooking and marinade in the wonderful apple flavors 🙂

In a separate skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.  Add the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice.  Stir to combine and cook until the apples are tender.  It’s wonderfully aromatic!

Now for plating!  Place a portion of the chicken on a plate.  Top with a portion of the apple mixture.  Then sprinkle with some chopped sage and enjoy.  It’s incredibly sweet and savory – the ultimate fall dish!

Happy Cooking!
