Seared Chicken Breast with Apple Ginger Sauce


  • 100g lean Chicken breast
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Parsley garnish


  • 1 Apple
  • 1 tsp juice of grated Ginger

Onion Rings

  • 1 Onion, finely sliced in rings


  1. Cut and core the apple
  2. Put water in a steamer and place the apple pieces in and cook for about 7 – 8 minutes till soft
  3. Put steamed apple and ginger juice in a blender – give it a quick blitz
  4. In a Teflon pan on medium-low heat dry fry the chicken breast, turning to brown both sides – about 7 - 8 minutes
  5. In the meantime, in a separate Teflon pan, dry fry the onion rings till dark brown. Cooking this way causes caramelization of the sugars in onion which results in a delightful sweet nutty flavor
  6. When cooked, remove the chicken breast from the heat and allow to rest on a saucer. After a couple of minutes, slice the chicken breast into even slices
  7. Place the apple ginger sauce on the bottom of the plate, lay the chicken pieces on top and garnish with parsley
  8. Place the onion rings around the chicken
  9. Season and serve hot
