Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Looking to cook your apples with things other than cinnamon and sugar? Try this savory dinner recipe! This unlikely combo is a filling and satisfying meal.

Add Apples & Vinegar
Add Chicken!
Combine with Raviolis!

Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Olive Oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 medium apple, diced (I used the crank apple peeler then cut the apple into 6ths)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 chicken breast, diced
Salt & Pepper

Heat oil in the pan, add onions. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until onions are golden and a deep brown
Add apple and vinegar, cook for 5 minutes or until apples are starting to get tender. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Saute in the same pan until it starts to get golden. [Depending on how big the pieces of chicken are, this could be added at the same time as the apple and vinegar.]

The original recipe says to serve with a slice of provolone cheese on top. I don't eat cheese like that or have it in the house. Instead, I made 4 jumbo raviolis according to the package directions. When the chicken was cooked I tossed the raviolis into the pan with a pat of butter and mixed it around get everything all nicely coated.
