Serving Suggestion: Serve the chicken with microwaved jacket potatoes (see below), or with rice or buttered noodles and a green salad or vegetables.
Variation: The sauce can be made with a dry white wine or richly ﬂavored chicken stock instead of cider, if you prefer, but you must use dessert apples as cooking apples would lose their shape.
Cook’s Tip: Microwaved jacket potatoes can make a speedy accompaniment to many main course dishes. Prick the skins of two evenly sized potatoes. Place on a piece of kitchen paper in the microwave and cook on high for 6–8 minutes, turning them over halfway through. Wrap in foil and leave to stand for 3–4 minutes.
