Braised Chicken Thighs Normandy


Braised Chicken Thighs Normandy is a fancy name for a simple dish of chicken cooked with apples and onions. Nonetheless, the dish is rich, creamy, and incredibly delicious. The chicken thighs stay moist and tender, with plenty of sauce to spoon over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes. In addition to fresh apples, the recipe includes applesauce, which intensifies the apple taste and provides richness and sweetness without the use of a lot of heavy cream. Apple cider vinegar in the sauce adds a little bite, and thyme and cinnamon enhance the tastes of the other ingredients without overpowering them. You can use whatever apples you have on hand, but the dish works especially well with sweet-tart apples like Braeburns or Galas.
