Number of Servings: 4


    * 4 boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (5 ounces each)
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon back pepper
    * 2 teaspoons olive oil
    * 4 slices bacon, chopped
    * 1 cup chopped onion
    * 1 medium Granny Smith apple, chopped
    * 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    * 1 cup apple cider
    * 1/4 cup chicken broth


Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken in the hot oil until browned and no longer pink inside, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
Add bacon to the skillet and cook until crisp and browned. Transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain; set aside.
Discard most of the bacon drippings from the skillet. Add onion to the skillet and cook, stirring continually, for 3 minutes. Add apple and thyme. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
Add cider and broth and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet and cook until heated through. Sprinkle with the bacon and serve.
