Bekah, this was great! DD2 actually ate everything on her plate! I cheated, though, I didn't want to dirty another dish, so I removed the chicken to make the sauce, then added it back in and simmered it on low for about 20 minutes. Tender, delicious, great flavor.....now I want to go make homemade applesuace! Thanks for sharing!
