Chicken in Apple Mustard Sauce

Chicken in Apple Mustard Sauce

The tart, sweet apple and pungent onion make a dazzling contrast in flavours. The chicken would look nice served with mashed potatoes and a bright green vegetable. One teaspoon of dried thyme can be substituted for fresh thyme.

Ingredients

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) margarine

  4. Heat liquid to boiling. Add mustard to skillet and stir until well blended. Add apple slices and simmer a few minutes more until they are just tender.

  5. To serve pour apples and sauce over chicken. Garnish with a fresh sprig of thyme (optional).
