Apple Brandy Chicken

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This apple brandy chicken is made with chicken breast halves, apple brandy, and mushrooms, along with cream and green onions. This makes a flavorful meal with rice or hot buttered pasta.

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/3 cup apple brandy, such as Apple Jack or Calvados
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme


Flatten chicken; place chicken breast halves between pieces of plastic wrap and gently pound until thinned out and uniform in size. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large heavy skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add chicken breasts. Cook for about 5 minutes, until browned, then turn. Add mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes longer. Add green onions and apple brandy and cook for another minute, until chicken is cooked through and mushrooms are tender. Add cream and thyme; simmer until thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Serves 4.

Huh?, Member starman1695

Everything was going fine until I got to: Add cream and thyme; simmer until thickened. Now, it could just be me, but I didn't see thyme listed in the ingredients.
