Spiced Chicken with Apple

Serves 4

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (6 oz ea)
½ tsp + pinch salt
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp ground allspice
¼ tsp turmeric
1 T olive oil
2 apples, cut into thin wedges
       ~ Gala apples recommended, but others will work; suit your taste
1 red onion, thinly sliced
juice of 1 lemon
½ C chicken broth
1 T honey

Season chicken with ½ tsp salt, pepper, allspice and turmeric. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned (3-4 min per side). Transfer chicken to plate and set aside.

Add apples, onion and pinch salt to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned (about 4 min). Add lemon juice to skillet, deglaze pan (30 seconds); add chicken broth and honey. Bring to boil; reduce heat to simmer.

Place chicken breasts on top of simmering apple-onion mixture. Cover, cook until chicken is thoroughly cooked (165˚ F) and sauce is slightly reduced (approx 6 minutes, but varies with thickness of chicken breasts).
