Ingredients

  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless, chicken thighs 1.5g

  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots 125 mL
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth 60 mL
  • 1/2 cup apple cider 125 mL

Instructions

  • 1. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Heat canola oil, in large frying pan, over medium heat. Cook chicken about 8 to 10 minutes, turning over once. Transfer chicken to a plate.
