Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 1¼ pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, divided
  • ¾ cup Chicken broth
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger, finely grated
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced,
  • ¼ teaspoon Red Pepper, Crushed
  • 4½ vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 8 oz shiitake mushrooms or other mushrooms sliced
Directions
  1. In a 12-inch non-stick wok (or large and deep non-stick skillet), heat 1½ tsp canola oil over moderately high heat. Once oil is hot, add diced chicken and season lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté until cooked through, tossing occasionally, about 6 to 7 minutes. Pour chicken onto a large plate and set aside.
  2. Return wok to burner, reduce to medium-high heat, add remaining 1 Tbsp canola oil. Once oil is hot, add asparagus, yellow onion and mushrooms, and red pepper flakes and sauté until tender-crisp, about 4 - 5 minutes, adding in garlic and ginger during the last 1 minute of sauteing. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl (or in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup) whisk together chicken broth, soy sauce, honey and cornstarch until well blended.
  3. Pour chicken broth mixture into skillet with veggies, season with salt and pepper to taste, and bring mixture to a light boil, stirring constantly. Allow mixture to gently boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1½ minutes. Toss chicken into mixture and serve warm over white or brown rice, sprinkled with additional red pepper flakes if desired (note that this is best served immediately as the liquids from the veggies will begin to break down and thin the sauce).
Notes
Have all ingredients prepared and ready to go

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup white wine

Then add panko and mix thoroughly. Add chicken to the dish with eggs and coat. Using a different hand, add chicken to the dish with the breadcrumbs and coat thoroughly. Place chicken on a plate and repeat until all chicken is coated.
  3. In a nonstick pan, melt 1½ tablespoons Salted Butter on medium heat. Add half of the chicken cutlets and cook on each side for 3–5 minutes (timing depends on thickness). Remove and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat and cook the rest of the chicken with the remaining 1½ tablespoon of Salted Butter.

  • 2 chicken breasts with skin
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions
  1. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken breasts
  2. Turn up heat to medium high. In a large, heavy skillet or Dutch Oven, add olive oil and butter. When hot, add the chicken breasts skin side down.
  3. Brown the chicken on all sides. When done, remove chicken to a plate and cover.
  4. In the same skillet, add apple wedges and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Be sure not to overcook--the apples will become too soft and mushy. Place apples in the same dish as the chicken. Keep covered.
  5. In the same skillet, over medium-high heat, add 2 tbsp. of olive oil. When hot, add the onions and Sautee until translucent.
  6. Next add the mushrooms. After about 3 minutes, stir mushrooms and lower heat to medium, cooking the mushrooms for about 10 minutes until browned on both sides. Towards the end, you might need to add a touch of olive oil while cooking.
  7. When the mushroom/onion mixture is nicely browned, turn up the heat to high, add the Calvados and stir to mix all ingredients together, cooking off the alcohol (about 2-3 minutes). Turn heat down to medium-high.
  8. Add the tarragon, apple juice or cider, and the chicken stock, simmer for about 10 minutes to blend all of the flavors.
  9. Add the cream to the skillet, stir to blend.
  10. Add the chicken and simmer for about ten minutes, until chicken is done, stirring occasionally.
Notes
Plating the Dish:
1 Place the chicken on a plate.
2 Scoop up the mushroom with a slotted spoon and pour over chicken.
3 Next take a few tablespoons of sauce and pour over the chicken and mushrooms
4 Add slices of apples on the side of the chicken.
