    Apple cider chicken skillet

    If you would like a giant Fall hug, this apple cider chicken skillet is the ultimate Fall dish that you need to get on your dinner table, ASAP.

    It is full of Fall flavor and uses USDA-Organic Farmer Focus chicken!

    When I came up with this apple cider chicken skillet recipe, I made it twice in one week because it was just that good.

    All the flavors go so well together and the sauce is kind of like a sweet-savory gravy that you can slather all over your chicken.

    The onions and apples give the dish great texture and the herbs used give this the official kickoff to Fall.

    Not to mention the apple cider that gives the dish that extra punchy kick.

    Farmer Focus Chicken

    You all know how much I love Farmer Focus chicken. This is my NINTH recipe with Farmer Focus so as you can see, I firmly stand behind this company.

    They produce USDA-organic, non-GMO, certified humane chicken that is high quality and has the freshest and cleanest taste. With that said, you know your apple cider chicken skillet is going to taste fantastic with Farmer Focus chicken!

    This time, I used their boneless skinless thin sliced chicken breast and I AM OBSESSED.

    You know how sometimes you buy giant/thick chicken breasts and have to cut them in half? Most of the time it’s so tricky to do that because they aren’t exactly non-slip so I feel like I’m going to cut myself slicing the chicken breast in half. Not to mention that the end result is sometimes not what I want — not even!

    Farmer Focus took that work out for me with these and they’re perfectly sliced and ready to use in this apple cider chicken skillet!

    Ingredients to make this apple cider chicken skillet

    Quick tips to make this apple cider chicken recipe a success

    • Shake off the excess flour when you coat the chicken. You don’t want a thick crust.
    • Let the sauce low simmer so it will thicken. Don’t rush it!

    Can I use another cut of chicken?

    You can, but cooking time will vary.

    I suggest boneless skinless chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken thighs.

    What variety of apples can I use?

    Any kind! Maybe not granny smiths, they’re a bit too sour.

    I can’t find apple cider at the store

    You can use apple juice.

    Is apple cider the same as apple cider vinegar?

    Omg, no. Please please get apple cider NOT apple cider vinegar.

    Apple cider vinegar is super popular right now (also called ACV) but it is VINEGAR and not what you want in this recipe.

    I’m calling this out because I have had people make my recipes that call for apple cider use apple cider vinegar and come back to say the recipe was terrible.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Prepare onion and apples and set aside. Chop the herbs and set aside.
    • In a shallow container, whisk together all-purpose flour, poultry seasoning, and salt.
    • Remove chicken from packaging and coat both sides in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess, then place on a plate and repeat until all the chicken is coated.
    • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter and oil are hot, add the chicken to the skillet to brown on both sides. Since they are thinly sliced, these will cook rather quickly. You don't want to cook them all the way through since they will finish cooking later.
    • Remove the browned chicken from the skillet and set on a plate for later.
    • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet then add the sliced onion and apples. Cook until relatively soft, about 7 minutes. Stir in the herbs.
    • Add the apple cider and chicken stock and add the chicken back into the mixture.
    • Cover and let simmer for 7-10 minutes until mixture is nice and thick and chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

    I was not hungry when I was surfing the Internet in search of something interesting for today’s dinner, and the I saw this photo and this recipe, and I am almost on my way to the kitchen! I will definitely keep that recipe, I have never tried to add apples or moreover apple cider to any kind of meat, I tried only pineapples or oranges and lemons. I find this recipe very creative! Thank you for your ideas and your blog! I will be a frequent guest here since now :)

      Hi, apologies. I just used a handful of each. About 5 sprigs of thyme, 2 sprigs of rosemary, and 3 sage leaves.
