  • 4 8-ounce boneless, skinless Chicken breasts (approximately 2 pounds total)
  • 6 tablespoons Unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup Apple butter
  • 1 large Red onion sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves diced or crushed
  • 2 small Apples sliced
  • 1/3 cup White wine
  • 1/2 cup Apple cider
  • 1/3 Cup Low Sodium Chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 rosemary sprigs


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the butter and apple butter into a 9-inch by 12-inch baking pan (or similar size). Add the chicken breasts, red onion slices, apple slices and crushed garlic.
  • Combine the white wine, chicken stock and apple cider. Pour over the chicken in the pan.
  • Season with salt and pepper, Italian seasoning and rosemary sprigs. Toss to combine.
  • Take to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees..
  • Turn the broiler on in the oven. Broil for 3 minutes watching it closely or until the chicken is golden brown.


● You can add some chili flakes if you want it to be slightly spicy.
● You can swap the onions for shallots too; the result is just as delicious.
