Cider Vinegar Chicken

I trust Jenn over at A Cook’s Quest. I really do. But when I saw this recipe combined vinegar AND honey, I was a bit hesitant. For absolutely no reason. This chicken was DELICIOUS! Sorry for doubting you Jenn!

Cider Vinegar Chicken

3 T. Extra virgin olive oil
1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 large onion, sliced
2 T. honey
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. apple cider or juice
1/2 c. chicken stock
1 1/2 tsp rosemary

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Season the cut chicken breasts with a little salt and pepper. Place in skillet and brown on all sides, but don’t cook all the way through. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside.

Add onions, honey and more salt and pepper to the skillet. Cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until the onions are nicely caramelized. Add the chicken back to the skillet.

Add cider vinegar, cider or juice, stock and rosemary to the pan. Increase heat and bring to a slow boil. Let simmer until sauce is reduced by half, about 10 minutes.  If you want a thicker sauce like I did, feel free to thicken it with a little cornstarch and cold water.

Total Cost $2.04 (with the mashed potatoes about $2.50-$3.00 depending on what you add to it.  Mine was close to $3.00 because I use a lot of butter and it hasn’t been on sale lately)

Chicken-$1.39

  • Oh this looks great!

    Apple cider vinegar is so good for you. I love a nice cup of hot water with apple cider vinegar and honey. I drink it once or twice a day, the way some people drink tea. Approx. a couple of teaspoons of each; I don’t measure. I read about this little “cocktail” in Prevention magazine many many years ago as a remedy for insomnia. I tried it when I was going through a phase where I was having trouble sleeping, and it really did work.

    I had to develop a taste for it over time — I didn’t like the taste at first and had to use more honey and less acv in order to make it palatable. Gradually I decreased the honey and increased the acv until it was about 50/50, and now I like it that way.

  • How much rosemary do you use? It isn’t listed in the ingredients but is in the narrative. Making it for dinner tonight so let me know! 🙂

  • My kids loved it but I can’t make anything plain. I added some sweet potatoes to it.
