Web20.Chickens's picture
  Skinless boneless chicken thighs 4
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
  Tart apple 1 Large
  Onion 1 Small
  Drained sauerkraut 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Apple cider 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Bay leaf 1
  Crushed juniper berries/1 1/2 tablespoons gin 4
  Caraway seeds 1⁄4 Teaspoon

1. Use your hands to flatten chicken to an even thickness. Season with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning, until browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from pan.
2. Add apple and onion to pan drippings. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until just softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in sauerkraut, cider, bay leaf, juniper berries, and caraway seeds.
3. Return chicken to pan, pushing thighs down into sauerkraut. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until chicken is tender with no trace of pink, about 10 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf before serving.
