2 apples, peels on and sliced into 1/2-inch thick wedges (I used Envy, but Fuji, Gala, and Braeburn would all work well)
2 onions, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup apple cider or unfiltered apple juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. In a shallow dish, season the flour with the salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour to lightly coat, shaking to remove excess flour, then set aside.
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced apples and onions and season with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the fresh thyme. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the apples and onions can soften and brown slightly. The apples should be al dente - not turned to mush but not to crisp still either. Transfer to a second plate and set aside.
Add the remaining butter to the empty skillet along with the tablespoon of olive oil. Once the butter has melted, place the dredged chicken into the pan and cook over medium heat until lightly browned all over, about 2 minutes per side. Add the apple cider and broth to the pan and heat until boiling. Cover, reducing heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through to 160 degrees F on an instant-read meat thermometer, about 8 to 12 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts.
Return the apples and onions to the pan with the chicken and sauce. Add the cream and stir to combine. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in the cider vinegar and adjust seasoning by adding salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
Sprinkle with additional minced fresh thyme, if desired, then serve with the sauce, apples, and onions spooned over the chicken and mashed potatoes on the side.

"My husband and I recently purchased a mountain vacation cabin in the Chester, CA area and chose Joe based on recommendations from some of the locals. He has lived in this area for many years and is very knowledgeable about the Chester environs and the local real estate market. We submitted our offer and Joe handled the negotiations quickly and would get back to us in a timely manner on any issues that came up in the counter offer process. He is EXTREMELY proactive in getting the best deal for his client and always listened to what we were saying and had our best interests at heart. Joe followed up on getting our deal closed on time and when we had delays at the title company, he went to the mat for us and helped us close the papers on time. The other great thing about Joe is that he has many references for his clients should they need remodeling/construction needs and the references we got were spot on. We would use Joe again for any other real estate transactions in this area! "
