Between my mother and myself, we have prepared this dish several times and it is very tasty! We have used various apples, as well: Granny Smith, MacIntosh and Gala. I think the MacIntosh adds the nicest flavor to the other ingredients. Don't be afraid to try this, you won't be disappointed!
I tried this on for size, and it was yummy. Sweet and tender chicken is wonderful. Makes a great summer meal, fresh.
