Cumin Chicken Tenderloins with Peppers and Caramelized Apples

I decided to also use apples in this dish and was very pleased with the results.  The apples sautéed for several minutes on one side until caramelized.  They complimented the tender chicken and peppers well.  I couldn't resist drizzling the entire dish with a little honey when serving.  Have I mentioned recently how much I love fall?

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken tenderloins
  • 2 anaheim peppers, sliced
  • 2 yellow apples, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • honey, drizzled

Spray a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high heat. Place chicken in the pan and sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper.  Grill until grill marks have formed and chicken is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from heat, let rest for 5 minutes, then slice into 1/2-inch thick slices.  Add peppers and apples to the pan, cook 8-10 minutes.

Stir the chicken slices back in.  Drizzle with honey when serving.

Yum! This sounds and looks great! I love cooking with apples in meals, as opposed to just baking with them.
