Chicken breast braised in cider with bacon

I made this for the first time last week, when I stumbled across the recipe and had a few cans of Bulmers in the fridge that we weren’t drinking.  Kieran loves it so much that it has already been requested again, so I get the feeling this will be a new regular. I’m not usually a fan of alcohol based sauces, but this is really nice. It reminds me of a chasseur almost, but the mustard in it gives it an edge.
