Awesome recipe. I added a tablespoon of brown sugar to the apple mixture, and it tasted perfect. Thanks for sharing!

lovely flavour! We enjoyed this chicken very much, but I was disappointed in the apples, they got burned all around the edges, any that were not under the chicken were unedible. When i saw this was happening I turned the oven temp down to 400f degrees and cooked them a littel longer, about 45 minutes. I will make them again, but at the lower temp. Thanks for posting.

I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!! I used McIntosh apples and left the skins on, and I didn't even have to mash them! They were the PERFECT balance of sweet and tart, too. I was super skeptical that this was going to bake in the amount of time given, and in the right way, but it did indeed. Leave it uncovered -- it works! So easy, so fast, and so GOOD! I had faith this was going to be good and invited friends to share this with us and they were equally as impressed. I think this will be making an appearance at dinner time quite often throughout the fall and winter.
