  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 pound chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 4 medium parsnips, peeled and chopped

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh (or 1/2 teaspoon dried) rosemary

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped

  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar


  • Heat the 2 teaspoons of oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring until just cooked through, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add the remaining 3 teaspoons of oil to the pot. Add the onion, parsnips, carrots, rosemary, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, 3-5 minutes.

  • Add the broth and apples; bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes. Return the chicken to the pot and stir in the vinegar.
