Apple Cider (Vinegar) Braised Chicken

March 18, 2018

 

This dish is one of my favourites because of the flavour the apple cider vinegar creates. The cooking method reminds me of winter, yet the flavours prepare you for spring, perfect for this time of year. It's also loaded with veggies (making it a great source of fibre and vitamin C). 

 

Cozy up and enjoy this nutritious and delicious dutch oven recipe (featured in the March/April issue of Yorklife Magazine). 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts

  • 4 strips bacon, chopped

  • 2-3 cups Brussel sprouts, halved

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 sweet onion, chopped

  • 2 small sweet potatoes, chopped

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2-3 tbsp. maple syrup

  • 2 tsp. dried thyme

  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

 

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in pan (or dutch oven), begin to sauté onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes or until onions are translucent.

  2. Add bacon and begin to crisp up.

  3. Place chicken in Dutch oven or pan, cook for 3-4 minutes. 

  4. Add Brussel sprouts, sweet potato, spices, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar.
