Chicken with Apple Sauce

Lately everything I make is either too simple to share, someone else’s recipe, or photographs hideously ugly (probably because of my dark kitchen and the sun setting mid-afternoon). But this recipe is too delicious not to share, with or without  a picture.

It’s chicken breasts in a savory apple sauce (not to be mistaken for applesauce) which I’ve been serving over mashed potatoes or sauteed garlic spinach.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 cup apple, chopped (skin on is fine)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • bay leaf
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar


  • Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Put oil in a good sized frying pan and cook the chicken five minutes on each side.
  • Add the water, apple, garlic, bay leaf, and vinegar. (The vinegar is the secret ingredient here. It adds a mouthwatering acidic note that will leave you wanting to lick your plate!)
  • Let simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and let rest.
  • Allow the sauce to cook a few minutes longer until the apples are soft and the sauce is thickened.
  • Slice the chicken and place over spinach/mashed potatoes/whatever you prefer. Spoon sauce over the dish.
