I couldn’t resist adding the apricots to this dish.

  • 1 tablespoon lemon  juice
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 8 dried apricots, reconstituted and cut into halves or quarters


Preheat a medium to large skillet over medium-high heat, for about 1 minute or until the surface of the pan is hot.

Add the oil and heat until rippling on the surface.

 Pat the chicken breast dry and season with pepper.

 Place the chicken in the pan and cook until the meat is golden, about 4 minutes.

Turn the chicken breasts, lower the heat to medium .

Cook until firm to the touch and transfer to a plate.

 Add the vinegar to pan and deglaze over medium-high heat, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Add the cider and the broth.
