Heat butter in a saucepan. Add leeks and Granny Smith apple, cover and simmer until tender, for about 5 minutes. Add calvados and reduce until almost evaporated. Stir in cider vinegar, broth, apple cider and bring to a simmer. Add chicken and egg noodles to broth, cover and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Skim off any fat floating to surface, stir in heavy cream, optional gruyere, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with chives.
