envy™ Apple Braised Chicken Thighs

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • Salt and pepper as needed
  • 2 envy™ apples, large diced
  • 1 yellow onion, large diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cups chicken broth

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius
  • Dry the chicken thighs with a paper towel
  • Generously season the thighs with salt and pepper
  • Heat the pot over high heat and let preheat for at least 1 minute
  • Add canola oil
  • Using the tongs, carefully place chicken thighs skin down and allow to sear for 4 minutes
  • Flip, sear the other side for 4 minutes
  • Remove the chicken thighs to a paper towel lined plate
  • Add the onions and envy™ apples to the hot oil and sauté for 4 minutes
  • Add the chicken thighs back to the pot and add the garlic and broth. Note - you should add enough broth so that the chicken is covered about ¾ of the way up with broth, but not completely covered. Depending on the size of your pot, you may need more/less broth than indicated in the ingredients
  • Bring the broth just to a simmer then cover with the lid and put in the oven for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the thighs from the broth and shred off the bone
  • Pour the braising liquid into a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over the thighs! Note - it will make a lot of sauce, so feel free to cool, add to a sandwich bag and freeze flat to use again later
