Made a small modification... My kids may die if they see an onion, so I skipped the onion and cooked some pecan chips with the apples instead. Very tasty.

Yum! I loved this - the flour mixture for the chicken was perfect, and I loved the baked apple/onion combo. It is sweet - I like sweet sides with my main dish. I make this exactly by the recipe. I even cut my chicken into a 3 oz piece which was a VERY small serving. I also pounded the chicken flat before cooking, which is my preference. One note is that you have to like baked apples to like this dish - similar to the ones served at places like Cracker Barrel. My husband didn't like this, but he just doesn't like baked apples.
