Ingredients

Directions

Toss the chicken with the mustard powder, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate, 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Place the pearl onions in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then drain. Trim the root ends of the onions and slip off the peels; set aside.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken skin-side down and cook until dark golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and let brown slightly on the other side, about 3 minutes. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining chicken.

Wipe out the skillet, then melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pearl onions and cook, stirring, until coated. Sprinkle in the flour; stir to coat. Whisk in the white wine and cook 1 minute, then whisk in the cider and broth; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; arrange the chicken skin-side up on top of the onions and tuck the apples around the chicken. Transfer the pan to the oven; bake until the chicken is crisp and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F, 25 to 30 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a platter; stir the vinegar and herbs into the skillet. Spoon the onions, apples and sauce around the chicken.
