Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 bacon slices, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh onion
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple cider
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • Serve with broccoli and white and wild rice.

Directions

  • Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
  • Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Add chicken to drippings in pan; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
  • Add onion to pan; cook 2 minutes or until tender, stirring constantly. Add cider and broth; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until broth mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup (about 5 minutes). Stir in cooked bacon; serve sauce over chicken.
