Chicken with apples and sage is the perfect meal to warm you up with fall flavors. Delicious served with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes or polenta.

Preparation
STEP 1

Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

STEP 2

Heat a large sauté pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Lightly coat bottom of pan with olive oil. When oil is hot, brown chicken skin-side down, working in batches if necessary. Remove to a plate.

STEP 3

Add butter, brown sugar, apples and shallots to pan. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until apples are browned, about 5 minutes.

STEP 4

Add broth, vinegar and sage. Stir, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

STEP 5

Return chicken to pan along with any accumulated juices. Reduce heat and simmer, loosely covered, until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly reduced, 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.
