Ingredients

3 slices bacon
chopped, or turkey bacon
12 each chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
without skin
*
2 each onions
halved and sliced
1 ¼ cups apple juice
2 each Granny Smith apples
peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon thyme
dried
*
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

In a large pot, cook bacon over medium heat until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes.

Transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to a piece of paper towel to drain.

Discard all but 2 teaspoons of fat from pan.

Add half of the chicken and brown well, about 2 minutes per side.

Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining thighs.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add onions to pan.

Cook, scraping up browned bits at bottom of pan, until onions are browned and beginning to soften, about 4 minutes.

Add apple juice, apples, mustard, vinegar, thyme, salt, pepper and reserved bacon and chicken thighs to pan.

Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center, 20 to 25 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir cornstarch together with 2 teaspoon water; stir into sauce.

Cook until sauce thickens, about 1 minute.

Very nice, easy to make and loads of flavor. Perhaps could use a bit more acidity. Lots of tasty sauce, would go well with some boiled potatoes or crusty bread to soak up the sauce. Chicken turned out juicy and fall-apart tender.
