We worked with our brand partner Chelan Fresh to bring you this extraordinary recipe, Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs with Apples and Cherries. Chelan Fresh cherry varieties are available from late spring to late summer.
There are many reasons to love this time of year and fresh cherries are at the top of the list! Cherry-lovers everywhere know the excitement of walking into the supermarket and finally seeing beautiful, plump cherries for purchase. It’s a wonderful thing!
Cherries are great in salads and desserts but don’t overlook them for the main course. This recipe for Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs with Apples and Cherries will knock your cherry-lovin’ socks off! The sweetness of the fruit is released and intensified during cooking and is simply amazing on top of pan-roasted chicken thighs.
You can substitute chicken breasts in place of thighs in this recipe if you’d like. Chicken thighs contain dark meat that makes them incredibly flavorful and compliments the apple and cherry mixture wonderfully. However, if you just aren’t a fan, feel free to make the swap.
