Chicken in Cider Glaze

This apple cider chicken recipe was such a pleasant surprise.  With few ingredients and quick prep and cooking time, it delivered a delicious meal that was full of flavor.

Keys to success for this fall recipe are to 1) pound the chicken thin for quick and even cooking (I usually cut each chicken breast in half before pounding; they are a bit easier to handle and cook faster than larger pieces) and 2) watch the cider-Dijon mixture as it reduces; it only takes a few minutes to reduce into a luscious, syrupy glaze.

I have added bacon pieces to the recipe – it was a wonderful compliment to the glaze.  However, by all means, leave it out if you would like to.  Another delicious addition that could be added to the sauce right before serving would be chopped and toasted walnuts or pecans.
