The buttery apples suit these chicken breasts, which are pounded thin so they cook evenly and quickly. You could also serve this compote with any roasted meat or vegetable.

Makes 6 servings.
Total: 20 minutes


• 2 apples, preferably Braeburn, peeled and thinly sliced
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
• 3 teaspoons unsalted butter, divided
• 1 1/8 teaspoons herbes de Provence (see note), divided
• 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
• 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
• 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest


1. Toss apple slices with lemon juice and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.

2. Mix 1 teaspoon herbes  de Provence, salt and pepper. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or the bottom of a small saucepan to a 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the seasoning mixture.

3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and keep warm. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the skillet; heat over high heat. Cook the remaining chicken in the same manner.

4. Add  broth, lemon zest, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon herbes and any accumulated juices from the chicken to the skillet. Cook, stirring to scrape up any browned  bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve with the sauteed apples.

Ingredient note: Herbes de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs commonly used in the south of France. You can find commercial mixtures in specialty stores, but it is easy to make your own. Mix 1 tablespoon each (or equal proportions) dried thyme, rosemary, oregano, marjoram  and savory in a small jar. If desired, add a pinch of dried lavender and crushed aniseed.
