Chicken with Apple Balsamic Cream Sauce
Adapted from Cooking Light
Serves 4
Ingredients:

-4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon black pepper,
-1 teaspoon butter
-1 teaspoon olive oil
-1 half sweet onion, thinly sliced
-1 medium cooking apple (I USED BRAEBURN), cored, halved and thinly sliced
-3/4 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
-2 tablespoons apple balsamic (I USED REGULAR BALSAMIC)
-2 tablespoons whipping cream
-1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (I USED CHIVES)

Method:

Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from pan; keep warm. Add onions and apples to the pan and saute 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in chicken broth and vinegar, and cook until apples and onions have softened, about 4 minutes . Remove from the heat and stir in whipping cream. Serve sauce with the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.
