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.
