Skillet Chicken with Apples and Sage

This recipe is the taste of fall in a savory meal. Juicy apples perfectly sauce tender chicken while red peppers play counterpoint to the flavor. Serve over a bed of steamed or braised greens or with a side of mashed sweet potatoes.


  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp. sage
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 4 tsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, sliced


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Cook chicken, flipping halfway through, until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165ºF (8-10 minutes). Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  2. Add peppers, juice, onion, sage, garlic, and pepper to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender (2-3 minutes).
  3. In a small bowl, combine water and cornstarch. Stir in apples. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly (2-3 minutes). Return chicken to skillet and heat through to serve.

For all the benefits of the plant-based diet, and especially for those on a vegetarian diet, there is still one very important consideration, which is the lack of B12. Our bodies can’t produce B12, the essential, water-vitamin found mostly in meat and dairy foods, and therefore we must seek it in our diet. For those on a plant-only diet, there are many fortified foods and supplements available to help them meet their B12 needs. This raises the question as to how easy it is to become deficient in B12 and whether supplements and fortified foods are an adequate replacement.
