chicken breast with caramelized applesIf you’ve got spare apples in your fridge and about to stale, wait no more. You may include apples in your everyday dishes like pork, fish or chicken. This recipe usually includes pork as the main meat ingredients, but we’ll replace this one with chicken breast fillets.

You may like this combination of flavor of chicken infused with rosemary and the caramelized apples. The meal is somehow low-fat because we will be using chicken breast and olive oil in replace of butter. Chicken breast is also preferred to use for processed chicken recipes like chicken nuggets.
