One-Pan Apple Braised Chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lb Chicken thighs 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons Pacific Flake Sea Salt
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Poultry Rub
  • 3 apples cut into wedges
  • 1 cup red onion, thinly sliced  
  • 3/4 cup apple juice 

Directions

  1. Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels to ensure a good sear.
  2. In a bowl, mix the Poultry Rub and Pacific Flake Sea Salt. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with this mixture.
  3. In a large skillet or braising pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the seasoned chicken thighs to the pan, skin side down. Sear for about 4 minutes until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Flip the thighs and sear for an additional 3 minutes. 
  5. In the same pan, add onions and apples and sauté for a couple minutes until wilted. 
  6. Add the grainy mustard and apple juice to the pan and let the mixture come to a simmer. 
  7. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan with a lid and let the chicken and apples simmer in the flavorful liquid for about 25-30 minutes. The chicken should be fully cooked and tender. 
  8. For a thicker sauce, increase the heat to medium-high and let the braising liquid in the pan reduce for about 5-7 minutes until it thickens, pour the reduced sauce over the chicken and apples to serve.
