Default Honey Dijon Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 tablespoon each Dijon mustard and lemon juice
1 large shallot, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon each honey and cornstarch

Combine apple juice, dijon mustard, lemon juice, shallot, thyme, rosemary, and black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat up the olive oil. Add chicken breasts and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Then add the apple juice mixture to the pan. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, for 5 to 7 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm but keep the leftover liquid in the skillet.

Gently boil remaining liquid in the skillet for 3 minutes, until slightly reduced in volume. Mix the sour cream, honey, and cornstarch in a small bowl until well blended then add the mixture to the skillet. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and has thickened. Pour sauce over warm chicken and serve immediately.
