This recipe is sponsored by Santa Margherita. Ease into autumn with this comforting dish of pan-seared spiced chicken breasts with roasted Gala apples and red onions. A side of garlicky sauteed Swiss chard provides the perfect earthy balance.



  1. Season the chicken with the allspice, turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; set aside. 
  2. Add the apples, onion and a pinch of salt to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the lemon juice to the skillet and cook, scraping up any browned bits, 30 seconds. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Arrange the chicken on top of the apple mixture. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is slightly reduced, 6 to 9 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil in a separate large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add the chard stems and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 3 minutes. Add the chard leaves; cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Serve with the chicken and apples.
