Apple Pan Chicken
This chicken is low fat, heart healthy, and a definite crowd pleaser!
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3 apples- peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tbsp. pine nuts
1/3 cup apple juice
1 ½ tsp. dried thyme
1 ½ tsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic until soft and translucent. Move the onions to the side, and brown chicken breasts 4 minutes on each side. Top chicken with apples, currants and pine nuts. Pour in apple juice. Season with thyme, parsley, jalapeno, salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are cooked and chicken is no longer pink.
