A note about serious food allergies

Normandy, in the northwest region of France, is home to some of the country's most celebrated gastronomic gifts. In particular, Normandy is revered for its apples and dairy producers. We're honoring the coastal region with this tender chicken breast with a tart-savory apple cream sauce. Served next to roasted fingerling potatoes and a fresh arugula salad, this meal transports you to the French countryside, no passport required.
