apple chicken skillet with mustard cream in a pot
Sautéed Apples Lend A Fresh Sweetness To Pan-Fried Chicken Cutlets
Elevate your pan-fried chicken cutlets by following Tasting Table recipe developer Jennine Rye's recipe for apple chicken skillet with mustard cream.
In this recipe, Rye pairs pan-fried chicken cutlets with thinly sliced apples and a mustard cream with Dijon, shallots, spices like paprika, and herbs like dried thyme.
This recipe is customizable with different seasonings and additional ingredients, and the best part is that you just need one pan.
If you don't like Dijon mustard, add honey for a honey-mustard-esque cream sauce. Maple syrup also pairs well with apples, or opt for spicy brown or bottled honey mustard.
Sliced onions will enhance the sauce because they will caramelize into a slightly sweet and soft texture that complements the sautéed apples.
You can also add apple cider for a stronger apple flavor, rosemary leaves, or a dash of cayenne pepper or red chili flakes for some heat.
