Apple Cider Chicken – Serves 1

IBS Apple Cider Chicken Dinner


1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper; to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider
3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves


Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Preheat a small skillet for about 1 minute over med-high heat. Add the oil and wait until it sizzles. Place the chicken in the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes until the meat displays a golden color. Flip over the chicken onto its other side. Lower the heat to med and add 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Cook for about 5 minutes until chicken is firm to the touch. Remove the chicken and place on a plate.

Dispose of the remaining liquid from the skillet. Add the vinegar and deglaze over med-high heat. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula. Add the cider and the broth. Bring the liquid to a boil. Cook for about 4 minutes until the liquid thickens to a sauce texture. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of butter, lemon juice and thyme leaves. Combine the chicken with the sauce in the skillet. Sprinkle additional salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
