  1. Heat a deep pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the juice first and bring to a low boil.
  3. Add in the chicken and sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper.
  4. Lower everything to a simmer and cover the pan, cooking for 15 minutes.
  5. Flip the chicken over.
  6. Partially cover the pan and cook for another 15 minutes.
  7. Pop the lid up so that a significant amount of steam can escape, allowing the apple juice to reduce down and thicken (the heat should be high enough that the juice is bubbling softly).
  8. Cook for another 10-20 minutes until the juice is thick and syrupy, turning the chicken every 10 minutes or so.
  9. Watch it closely for the last 2-3 minutes, as it can burn quickly.
  10. Remove from heat once the chicken is cooked through and the juice resembles honey in consistency.
