Apple Cider Chicken

I have had this recipe on my note cards for sometime and I continued to add to and take away from the notes. Finally it was ready to try and it certainly did not disappoint, I only wish it could have been ready sooner. A trip to the farmers market for fresh apples and vegetables, pick up some chicken breast, now we are ready to go! The blend of these flavors are wonderful and I can't wait to share it with you.
