OUTSTANDING ~ A REALLY GREAT CHICKEN DINNER! I really liked the sauce & would probably double it another time! I did use the apple brandy & found it added a nice flavor! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed, believe it or not, as part of my theme, "This Little Piggy..." in the current Comfort Cafe]
