1/2 cup apple juice or apple cider

In a large heavy skillet, brown the chicken breast halves in hot oil over medium heat, turning once. Remove chicken from skillet. Add the apples and leek to the skillet and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet. Add apple juice or cider and chicken bouillon granules. Sprinkle with thyme and white pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, or till chicken is tender and no pink remains. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. In a small mixing bowl, stir together sour cream and cornstarch. Stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons of pan juices to thin mixture; add remaining to pan juices in skillet.
