POINTS-5. Simmering poultry in fat-free liquid is a moist, low-POINT way to flavor food. Experiment with other types of broths and juices, too.

Very Very Tasty. The only problem I had was that I could not get the liquid to thicken. Didn't bother us much, though. I think I may add more apples next time. Nice flavor. Very moist chicken.
Mmm-mmm good! I made this for dinner tonight & it was a hit! I did a few things differently, but nothing that would alter the rating. I diced the chicken into cubes since I didn't have any cutlets, therefore I also diced my onions & chopped my apples. I ended up going ahead & seasoning the flour so I went ahead & added the ginger at that point along with some salt, pepper, garlic, & cayenne. I used olive oil out of preference and did an extra teaspoon. I also had to use apple juice since I didn't have any cider & a bullion cube for the broth. The sauce thickened up perfectly with the cornstarch and I served it with rice & stir-fry veggies. A perfect meal! Also, I'm still double checking this, but with my brands & changes, I calculate these out to 4 points per serving! It probably is more likely to be 5 but that's still great for such a flavorful & filling meal! Thanks Tish!
My husband said (after his second helping), "That was delicious! That's a saver." And he is right. Based on the other reviews, I added another apple and doubled the amount of ginger. Sauce was thick and delicious, and I'll make it again for sure. Thanks!
