I need of a quick and easy way to prepare chicken after a long evening of errands. (No cleaning up afterwards was a bonus.) I was quickly drawn to this as I love the combination of ginger and lemon. I liked the flavor imparted to the chicken but really had some difficulty with the apple, in my case a Granny Smith. I also used light butter in lieu of the regular, a common substitution for me. Was a little worried about moisture but there was certainly plenty. The fruit really didn't work for me and detracted from the dish overall. That said, I'm thinking I would like to try this with pineapple chunks as that might work a bit better. Thank you for a culinary adventure.
