Apple Cider Turkey


  • 1 lb boneless, turkey breast
  • 1/2 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper, divided
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 1/3 c finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/2 c unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


  1. Season turkey with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook, flipping once, until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove turkey from skillet and set aside.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, apples, shallot and thyme to the pan. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add apple cider and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan; adjust heat to maintain a simmer. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken registers 165°F, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the turkey to a platter. Stir sour cream, parsley and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper into the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the turkey.
