Cider Braised Chicken and Cabbage

This one-pot dish is perfect for a crowd or a week-night family dinner because it is quick and tasty. Braised chicken breasts are paired with potatoes, cabbage, fennel, carrots and apples. Braising ages back to the mid-nineteenth century, when braising was defined as referred to as any technique that required cooking food with hot coal. Though times have changed as roasting and grilling have come about, braising is always a great option when you want to try something different.
