cider braised chicken with sweet potatoes and sage
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless thighs
2 c fat free reduced sodium chicken broth (ok I cheated. I used regular chicken broth because this sounded wrong to me!)
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 c apple cider (fresh from the green market, as always!)
8 medium shallots
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 clove minced garlic
6 fresh sage leaves
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, cubed
1. Season both sides of chicken with s&p. Heat oil and brown chicken on both sides; remove from pan and set aside.
3. Add chicken and sweet potatoes. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook about 30 minutes. One chicken thigh and about 3/4 cup veggies per serving is about 8 WW points served alongside some couscous.
Again, I cheated and definitely ate more than one piece of chicken, but I won't tell you how many servings I gobbled up! My version was served up with some market fresh brussel sprouts sauteed simply in salt & pepper and toasted hazelnuts... and bacon fat; I just couldn't live without it. But the meal really was wonderful, flavorful, seasonal and, most importantly, simple! Just like Aunt Donna promised, "IT WAS DELICIOUS!" Thank you for the recipe suggestion and please, keep them coming.
