Apple Cider Chicken with Rosemary, Leeks, and Fennel

Even though I don’t like the fact that it is a little cooler in the fall, I do enjoy all the flavors of fall cooking.  In addition to stocking up on pumpkin, my fridge is also full of apple cider.  I love having a warm mug of apple cider with some cinnamon on top, and I also love cooking with it.  Here is a fall dish where the chicken bathes in apple cider and cinnamon!

Apple Cider Chicken with Rosemary, Leeks, and Fennel

Pieces:

  1. 2 chicken breasts
  2. one leek, greens cut off and chopped into rounds
