Select ingredients:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butterfly the chicken breasts by cutting each breast in half lengthwise, keeping your knife parallel to the cutting board and opening each one up like a book.
  2. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Spread 1 tablespoon of apple butter on one side of each chicken breast. Top with 2 tablespoons of cream cheese. Fold chicken to close and secure with toothpicks or kitchen twine.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides. Move the skillet to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Transfer chicken to a plate and let rest.
  4. Place the skillet back over medium-high heat and add the cider and mustard, whisking until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Turn heat to low and whisk in the butter and chopped parsley.
  5. Remove toothpicks or kitchen twine from chicken. Serve with sauce and extra chopped parsley for garnish.

Recipe Tip: If your skillet is not oven-safe, simply transfer the chicken to a glass or metal baking dish.
