French Style Chicken with Apples

MAKES: 4 servings
CRISPY RATING: A mild flavor, but very nice


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 10 ounces low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons brandy, apple cider or apple juice
  • 2 large apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, cut in halves
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • pinch fresh dill or parsley, chopped

1. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Brown chicken breasts lightly on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

2. Add sliced onion, apples, artichokes, broth, juice and spices to pan. Cook 3 minutes.

3. Spread chicken breasts in skillet; arrange apples, onion and artichokes on top. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and heated through.

4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh parsley or dill and apple slices before serving.


I like this dish - it has a good, fresh flavor. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold up too well as leftovers - the apples get real mushy.
