Sour Cream Apple Chicken

I've found that apples and chicken go well together because they both have subtle flavors. I developed this recipe myself. I think it's not only a great-tasting main course, it also looks nice on the table.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup apple juice or cider
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Cooked spinach noodles
  • Paprika


  • In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat until browned and no longer pink inside, about 6-8 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Add apples, juice, onion, basil and salt to the skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until apples are tender.
  • Combine sour cream and flour; add to skillet. Stir and cook until sauce is warm (do not boil). Arrange noodles on a serving platter. Top with chicken. Spoon apple sauce over all. Sprinkle with paprika.

    Very Delicious! I added celery and carrots for color and served with mashed potatoes since my husband is not a fan of pasta.
