In this delicious and healthy wrap recipe, we gently poach chicken in apple cider and broth, along with aromatics like onion and bay leaves, then reduce the poaching liquid to stir into the chicken, yielding terrific flavor. You can also skip the wrap and serve this over brown rice to make an Asian grain bowl.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chicken, cider, broth, onion and bay leaves in a large skillet. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Uncover, turn the chicken over and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 160 degrees F, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board. Return the liquid to a boil over high heat and cook until reduced to 1/3 cup, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toss cabbage in a medium bowl with mustard, vinegar, oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt; massage until softened. Add radishes and sesame seeds and toss to combine.

  • Discard the onion and bay leaves. Shred the chicken and stir into the sauce along with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve the chicken and slaw in wraps.
