Apple Gravy Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
garlic powder
1/2 onion, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into wedges
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups apple cider

1. Heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder, add to pan and sear until golden, about 4 minutes each side.
2. Remove chicken from pan, and set aside. Add remaining butter, onion, apple, garlic, thyme and bay leaves. Sauté until apple begins to brown, about 6 minutes. Add flour and stir 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Stir in cider, and place chicken back into pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes.
