Any favorite recipes using apple cider?

My daughter and I love apple cider. I made muffins with an apple cider glaze a couple of days ago.

Does anyone have a favorite recipe that you would share that uses apple cider in it?

This originally came off foodnetwork TV, I really think the apple cider almost tenderizes the chicken, really good!

Apple Cider Chicken

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt & black pepper
1/2 onion, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 1/4" wedges
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups apple cider

Heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over mediumhigh heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add to pan and sear till golden. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add remaining butter and onion, apple, garlic, thyme and bay leaves. Saute til lapple begins to get color and onions soften. Add flour and stir 2 to 3 minutes. Put chicken back into pan and add cider bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook till chicken is cooked through. Makes 4 servings

Cat , the chicken sounds good, Iím going to give it a try.
I use the apple cider making pork chops
Dredge the chops in a mixture of flour, salt and papper
Brown in hot oil in frypan ( I use an electric skillet) browning both sides
Slice 1 or 2 onions and put on top of chops
Add cider, turn to low and simmer til done about 20 min
Tami I would also try substituting the cider for other liquids in things, like for the water in a yellow or white cake mix. I use cold coffee instead of water in chocolate cake mix and it was good
I bet it would be good as the liquid in a slow cooked pork roast or even in beef stew

I was going to say the same - any recipe with pork can be transformed by the use of cider instead of liquid/stock.

I have used apple cider, juice and apple sauce in my quick breads. Makes them moist and extra tasty.

Braised Red Cabbage

In a 12" skillet heat 1 tbsp olive oil and ad 1 small head of red cabbage, thinly sliced and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook 2 minutes, stirring. Add 1 cup apple cider AND 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar. Heat to boiling. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or till tender. Stir in 1 tbsp capers, chopped. Serves 4

This is good with any pork dish!
