I've been making this recipe for over 10 years; my family requests it all the time. Great flavor and relatively easy/quick. I serve this with Wild Rice and Zucchini (cooked in olive oil with some garlic salt). Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Heat skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts in the skillet until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes on each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  2. Cut chicken into strips.
  3. Whisk apple juice, lemon juice, cornstarch, and chicken bouillon in a skillet until smooth.
  4. Heat skillet over medium heat, stirring until sauce is thick and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes; continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
  5. Place chicken strips into the apple juice sauce and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes before serving.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I'm always looking for low calorie, yummy and easy ways to prepare chicken and this recipe hit the mark on all three. I didn't have cornstarch so I used flour. I served the chicken with cous cous and broccoli. The sauce was so good I went back for seconds and poured it over the cous cous. I recommend trying this recipe.

This was easy enough that I even had my husband help me make it. I wasn't paying attention to what he was doing and ended up juicing 3 big lemons instead of 2. It turned out great anyway. My picky 7 year old had seconds and my 11 year old decided that it was also good to eat for breakfast the next morning. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
