Brie and Apple Chicken Breasts

Brie and Apple Chicken Breasts: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 40 min.
The creaminess of Brie and sweetness of apple cider bring a new elegance to the common chicken breast.

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 small apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 4 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt and
  • 1-2 Tbs flour
  • 4 slices Brie cheese
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 450F.
  • Warm 1 tablespoon butter in a large, non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the apples and saute until softened. Set the saute pan aside because you will need it again. Tuck a slice of Brie and several slices of apple into the pocket on the underside of the chicken breasts between the breast and the tenderloin. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Pat a little flour onto both sides of each chicken breast.
  • In the saute pan, warm 1 tablespoon butter over high heat. When the butter foams add the chicken breasts and brown them on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a sheetpan, stuffed-side-down, and put it into the oven for 12 to 14 minutes.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. Pour the cider and broth into the saute pan and boil it over high heat until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups. Swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, divide the chicken among 4 plates and pour a little sauce over each.
