This was a good recipe, easy to make, and turned out well. I felt something was missing... maybe some brown sugar (or is that just my sweet tooth talking?) or some sliced apple. Next time I will try adding both. I served with rice, broccoli and carrots.
This recipe is such a surprise! You have the savory side with onions, garlic, thyme and basil. Then you have a fruity side with the apple juice and orange peel. What and unusual and delcious dish!! Served this with sweet potatoes and broccoli. YUM! Thanks for posting, Mirj.
This is a really different and very tasty dish. My boyfriend wasn't looking very sure about it while I was making it, but he seemed to enjoy it. I loved how the apple juice thickened up into a lovely sauce during the time in the oven. I will definitely make some rice to go with it next time to use up all of that wonderful sauce. Thanks for the recipe!
What a great change of pace from my other chicken dishes! It's hearty without being heavy, and has wonderful flavor. I had to do without the mustard powder, as I discovered in the middle of assmebling the dish that I had no mustard powder int he house, but it was still a major hit with my fiance and our guests. I added extra apple juice to make more "sauce" and included diced apple to the dish just before baking, and loved the results. It was great served over rice. The next time I make it -- and there *will* be a next time -- I will make sure that I add the mustard powder, since I think it will make this already great dish even better.
OMG!!! I made this (with slight modifications) and it was a complete hit! It is just delicious! Instead of onions I used onion powder, no orange rind, I used 2 serving spoons of minced garlic. I used a combination of olive oil and butter flavored cooking spray to fry with. My whole family just loved it! This would especially be great with rice. I would definitely put in more garlic the next time I make it. Thank you!
This was just OK for us, barely tasted the apple at all. I would definately add some apple pieces, and more apple juice to make more "sauce," and serve this over something if I made this again.
