Hard Cider Glazed Chicken

Have you got some hard cider at home? What about some chicken? Some apples?

GOOD. Then you almost have enough to make this hard cider glazed chicken!

You Will Need:

  • 2-3 chicken breasts
  • 1 16oz bottle of hard cider of choice I used Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple, but you could use any flavour your prefer
  • 1 medium sized apple sliced into thin pieces I had Granny Smiths in the fridge and they worked wonderfully, but feel free to experiement and use the apples you like!
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1T reduced sodium soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How-to:

  1. Add hard cider, sugar, apple and soy sauce into a pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir together and allow it to come to a boil. Let it cook until it has reduced by half this took quite a bit in my experience, so be sure to stir and check regularly. Once reduced, remove from heat.
  3. While your glaze is reducing, cook the chicken breast in the oven at 425 for 25 minutes.
  4. Pour the glaze over the chicken and turn your oven to broil to finish cooking the chicken.

I served this over a bed of salad greens, but you could have this with anything! Roasted veggies, quinoa.. or put it in a wrap!
