Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, flipping once, until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

  • Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, apples, shallot and thyme to the pan. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add apple cider and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

  • Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; adjust heat to maintain a simmer. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken registers 165°F, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Stir sour cream, parsley and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper into the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
