  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk together mayonnaise and vinegar in a large bowl. Add apples, kohlrabi, turnip, scallions, and parsley; stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. 

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in an ovenproof 12-inch skillet over medium until shimmering. Add chicken, skin side down; cook, undisturbed, until skin is golden brown and crisped, 8 to 10 minutes. Flip chicken, and transfer to preheated oven. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest portion of chicken registers 160°F, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm. 

  1. Meanwhile, add broth and apple cider to skillet, and scrape with a wooden spoon to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-high; reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reduces by about half, 8 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat. While gently swirling skillet, gradually whisk in butter, about 1 teaspoon at a time, until emulsified. Stir in chopped thyme; season with salt and pepper to taste. 

  1. Return chicken, skin side up, to skillet; spoon sauce over top. Serve immediately with apple-kohlrabi slaw; garnish with additional parsley leaves and additional black pepper, if desired.
