It just wasn't anything special.

I have to give this a whooping five stars! AND I even messed it up! First, I bought apple juice instead of cider and just started making it from the notes on my shopping list. So when I removed the chicken and tasted the sauce, I though it was too sweet. Second, I bought whipping cream to add. When I realized the mistakes I had made, I added a tbls. of applecider vinegar and the sauce broke! Well, a little more cooking and playing around and I ended with a delightful meal served with jasmine rice and steamed greenbeans. This turned out good enough to want to make it again....the right way! Thanks Parsley72.
