Absolutely yummy! I just added about 3 tablespoons of honey to the apple juice, and we had a great dinner. I served it with plain rice, and there was lots of gravy/juice for the rice to soak up! Unfortunately, there were no leftovers. I may have to treble the recipe next time...
My family and I loved this chicken dish. The sauce is bitchin'. The flavor of chicken and apples is a new discovery for me and one that I find extremely yummy.Thanks Dorothy. You are so right, this is a wonderful fall recipe.
Excellent, easy and quick way to serve chicken. I followed the recipe exactly with good results and we all loved this dish.
