Salt and pepper chicken cutlets. Lightly coat each in a dusting of flour.
In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat and brown the chicken cutlets for 2 minutes each side, transfer them to a plate. Add remaining butter and saute the apple slices with brown sugar over medium high heat turning until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the apple liqueur or cider, wine, cream, rosemary and thyme, bring mixture to a boil, and add the chicken cutlets. Simmer covered for 15 minutes. Place chicken and apple mixture onto platter. Taste sauce for additional seasoning of salt and pepper and then grate a pinch of fresh nutmeg into the sauce and pour sauce over chicken. I serve this dish with fresh herb buttered noodles.
