Apple Braised Chicken

2 tsp vegetable oil   
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, four 4-oz pieces   
  2 Tbsp all-purpose flour   
1 large onion(s), sliced   
2 medium apple(s), firm, cored and sliced   
  1 cup(s) apple cider   
1 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth   
  1/2 tsp table salt   
  1/2 tsp ground ginger   
  2 tsp cornstarch   

Instructions

  • In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, warm oil over high heat. Toss chicken with flour in a medium bowl, patting off excess. Place chicken in skillet and brown well on both sides. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Reduce stove temperature to low and add onion to skillet. Sauté, stirring often, until onion is tender and lightly browned.
  • Stir in apples, cider, chicken broth, salt, ginger and chicken. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken, onions and apples to a serving dish.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 2 to 3 tablespoons of pan juices. Combine cornstarch mixture with remaining pan juices, whisking constantly. Simmer for one minute. Pour sauce over chicken and serve. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 3/4 cup of apple-onion mixture per serving.
