I wasn't sure about this one at first, but knowing that apples and chicken are a terrific metabolism booster, I gave it a try. It was DELICIOUS. I found it on the WW website, but I thought I'd share it with you DIS WW's anyway....just in case you don't visit that site.


POINTS per serving: 5
Recipe yeilds 4 servings


2 tsp vegetable oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), four 4 oz pieces
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 large onion(s), sliced
2 medium apple(s), firm, cored and sliced
1 cup apple cider
1 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cornstarch


1. In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, warm oil over high heat. Toss chicken with flour in a medium bowl, patting off excess. Place chicken in skillet and brown well on both sides. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

2. Reduce stove temperature to low and add onion to skillet. 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. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 3/4 cup of apple-onion mixture per serving.
