365 Ways To Cook Chicken- Tomato-Apple Chicken

Today I went to my favorite library book store. I was surprised that I only found one cookbook I wanted: 365 Ways To Cook Chicken. Usually they have a really great cookbook section. This recipe from the book sounds rather unusual but good. Tomato-Apple Chicken 2 teaspoons vegetable oil 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness 1 medium onion, sliced 1 can (16 oz.) tomatoes 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced 2 small apples, cored and cut into eights 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley 1. Heat oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook about 4 minutes a side, until lightly browned. Scatter onion slices over chicken. 2. In a medium-size bowl, combine tomatoes, brown sugar, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and Worcestershire sauce; pour over chicken. Top with lemon slices and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Add apples and cook 10 minutes more, until chicken is tender. Remove chicken and apples to a platter and keep warm. 3. Stir dissolved cornstarch into liquid in pan. Cook over high heat, stirring until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Spoon over chicken and apples. Garnish with parsley. Posted by Rochelle R. No comments:
