So tonight's super yummy dinner was a slightly edited meal from eatingwell.com it's not only clean it's also ST2 Feingold friendly and you can make this without the apples and still be good. The apples are just like apple pie filling...YUMMY
Chicken & Spiced Apples
2 apples, preferably Braeburn, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3 teaspoons unsalted butter, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
1 cup reduced-sodium organic chicken broth
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
- Toss apple slices with lemon juice and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.
- Mix 1 teaspoon
herbes de Provencemrs. dash, salt and pepper. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or the bottom of a small saucepan to a 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the seasoning mixture.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and keep warm. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the pan; heat over high heat. Cook the remaining chicken in the same manner.
- Add broth, lemon zest, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon herbs and any accumulated juices from the chicken to the pan. Cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve with the sautéed apples.
VERDICT: OMG everyone in my family emptied their plates and loved this. The apples are so yummy and go nicely with the chicken. I served this with some whole grain pasta and roasted asparagus...I didn't have the herbes de provence so I used mrs. dash garlic herb and it worked really good. I also added the apples to the sauce at the end. If you are doing Feingold either just omit the apples or don't add them to the plate for the person who can't have them.
