  1. Combine flour and seasoned salt in a wide, shallow dish. Coat the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken in the butter, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.
  2. Combine the onions, mushrooms, and apples in the skillet. Cook and stir until the apples are just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brandy, thyme, salt, and pepper; bring to a simmer. Return chicken to the pan; cook, uncovered, about 10 minutes. Stir in cream, and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.

Absolutely loved it! A good hot weather dish. I made it as written and served the apples and onions on the side with buttered rice. This will be a company meal for me.


This was good, but the sauce is veeerrrrryy rich. I loved the creativity of the recipe, as I have never had these ingredients together before, but I can't give 5 stars because my family didn't love it. It was a beautiful entree and to present it, I didn't add the chicken to the sauce, but spooned the thickened mixture over the chicken. If I could rate it 4.5 stars, I would. Thanks for sharing such an interesting recipe!


This is my husband's fav meal! It is on the menu at his fav restaurant, but it is called Chicken Normandy. I have been looking for this recipe forever! Thank you very much, we moved to Costa Rica and don't get back to the States much, now I can make it here!
