Chicken with Cider and Bacon Sauce

Bacon is the key to a simple sauce that transforms skinless, boneless chicken breasts into a meal that looks and tastes more involved than it really is. A little unsweetened apple cider rounds out the sauce with a subtle layer of flavor. Another sauce secret: Don't forget to scrape the browned bits from the pan when you deglaze it, because they're the key to a richer sauce.

Pantry Checklist:

  • Skinless, boneless chicken breasts (4)
  • Bacon
  • Onion
  • Unsweetened apple cider
