RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - A juicy chicken recipe with fresh, savory flavors ... all in one pan! How can you go wrong?

Heat 2 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle the tops of 8 chicken thighs evenly with a half teaspoon salt and a quarter teaspoon pepper. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add the chicken to the pan, top side down. Cook 4 minutes; flip and cook until the meat is cooked through, and juices run clear, another 4 minutes. remove to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

In a small bowl, stir together a half cup of apple cider with 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard. Add 2 more teaspoon of olive oil the pan and add 3 medium firm, sliced Gaia apples, a half teaspoon salt and a quarter teaspoon pepper, as well as 2 teaspoon fresh rosemary. Cook for 5 minutes until the apples are lightly and tender and begin to brown. return the chicken to the pan and pour the cider mixture over the top. Let cook 4 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half.

Serve warm, sprinkled with additional chopped fresh rosemary.
