Fantastic! The flavor was wonderful. I used a really sweet Gala apple, so I omitted the brown sugar, but added a little extra cinnamon. Like the previous reviewer, I also cooked it all in one pan to save on dishes, and it worked out quite well. I served it with a nice green salad and Recipe #248074. Thanks for a great recipe!

Tasty. I browned the chicken first 2-3 minutes each side and set aside, then made the sauce and returned the chicken to the pan to cook for 10 minutes....saves on having to clean two pans in lieu of one. Used the brown sugar, but probably didn't really need to. Thanks much!
