A Surprise Use for the Fruits of Your Apple-Picking Labor
Put aside the applesauce and apple-pie recipes for a moment, and consider using at least one of those Granny Smiths in this quick weeknight dinner. The fruit and a creamy, sour cream-based sauce work wonders, keeping potentially dry chicken breasts moist. You cut the meat into bite-size pieces, so there's more surface area to soak up the flavorful juices created by cooking the apple slices in chicken stock. A bit of thyme and Dijon mustard give the dish even more depth and counterbalance the tart fruit nicely.
