|4||PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, All Natural (1.5 lbs.)|
|2||(12-ounce) bottles Hard Apple Cider|
|2||tbsp brown sugar|
|1||tbsp olive oil|
|1/4||tsp black pepper|
|2||tbsp unsalted butter|
|2||Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 12ths|
|1||tbsp coarse grain mustard|
|4||cup thinly shredded kale|
In a medium saucepan combine 1 bottle of hard apple cider and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Boil for about 15 minutes until reduced to ¼ cup.
Brush the chicken breasts with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium low heat. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Baste with hard apple cider glaze during the last 5 minutes of grilling, being careful not to burn the glaze. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170 degrees F. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the apple slices and sauté for 5 to 8 minutes until browned. Transfer the cooked apples to a bowl and keep warm. Add the remaining bottle of hard apple cider to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes until dressing is reduced to about ½ cup. Remove from heat and swirl in the mustard.
Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and slice into serving pieces. Divide the kale between 4 plates. Top with slices of chicken and apples. Pour the warm apple dressing over all and serve.
