Simmering poultry in fat free liquids is a moist, low POINTS value way to flavour food. Experiment with other types of broths and juices, too.

Ingredients

Vegetable oil

2 tsp(s)

Cooked skinless boneless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s)

All-purpose flour

2 tbsp(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 large, sliced

Fresh apple(s)

2 medium, firm, cored and sliced

Apple cider

1 cup(s)

Canned condensed chicken broth

8 oz

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Ground ginger

½ tsp(s)

Cornstarch

2 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, warm oil over high heat. Toss chicken with flour, patting off excess. Place in pan and brown well on both sides.
  2. Remove chicken from pan, reduce heat to low and add onion. Sauté, stirring often, until onion is tender and lightly browned.
  3. Stir in apples, cider, chicken broth, salt, ginger and chicken. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken, onions and apples to a serving dish.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 2 to 3 tablespoons of pan juices. Combine cornstarch mixture with remaining pan juices, whisking constantly. Simmer for one minute. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
