"Easily adapted for whatever you have on hand. I often substitute thighs for the breasts, regular brandy or apple juice for the apple brandy, and if you can't find Havarti Cheese, Gouda or Colby work well. If you have a newer model slow cooker, this will cook in 4-5 hours, as opposed to 6-7."

"This is a very nice and great tasting recipe for the crock pot. And so easy also, I did make one mistake (hmmm) I forgot to make the sauce at the end!!!! The smell was so great and the family were hassling me for dinner that I completely forgot all about it!!!!! I did use the cheese, DH noticed it a bit dry but everyone else loved it, without the liquid sauce. ................. so next time! YES !! .....I will remember!!!! I cant wait to try this again the right way!!! If we liked it without I am sure we will ove it with it! Thanks Amanda"
"This was incredibly easy! And the flavors were wonderful! My chicken breasts were a little smaller than I would have liked and therefore were drier than I would have liked. My crock pot tends to cook faster than most recipes anyway so I have to monitor it closely. But despite a little dryness, the dish itself was awesome! Made for ZWT4."
"This was so easy to make and very tasty. I made it exactly as stated. My problem is that it cooked way to fast. I was planning on dinner at 5 tonight and invited my parents and grandmother, but the chicken was ready 2 hours too soon! I opened the lid just to check on it and I stuck a fork into one of the pieces of chicken and found that it came apart so easily. I realized that I needed to probably keep it warm, so I set my slow cooker to warm. Then I feared that it would get dry and it started to. I had to take it out of the crock pot and I covered it and kept it in the oven (off) to keep until I was ready for everyone to come over. That's when I made the sauce and broiled the chicken with the cheese. All in all it turned out fine and my family really enjoyed it. I made this with mashed potatoes, snowpeas and carrots. Again, this was very good, I was just frustrated about how quickly it cooked. Maybe it is because I have a very new slow cooker? Not sure.. did anyone else have this problem?"
"This was very delicious! It was a perfect addition to a Healthy-ish Fall Comfort Food theme dinner that I had w/ a couple of girlfriends (although my husband managed to show up just in time for our dinner - and he really loved this too!) Only change I did was minor - I used regular brandy b/c that's what I had.... It was fabulous. It's perfectly perfect for a main dish salad - and I think that's how I'll use it again. The salad was pretty typical - but w/ craisins in it and a vinaigrette and it all just went so nicely together! We also had it w/ a soup and Irish soda bread. A perfect meal helped along by this wonderful and super easy dish! It's a keeper! Many thanks!"
"Very nice! The flavor here was wonderful although my chicken did get a little over done. I just need to adjust the time for my crockpot or figure out how to do this in a regular pan. The cheese and parsley on top was a tasty and pretty addtion. Love that you put it all in a nice dish for presentation. I could not find Calvados anywhere here so I used 1 oz regular Brandy and 1 oz apple cider (2 oz = 1/4 cup) and it worked well. Will pick up some Calvados the next time I go to Houston just for this recipe! Definitely a keeper! Thanks Amanda!"
"I like my crock pot and this dish made me like it even more. Change I made was I substituted the 1/4 cup of French apple brandy with 1/4 cup of orange juice + 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (as per kitchen encyclopedia), otherwise I kept to the recipe. Everything about this recipe was perfect, the sauce, the golden apples, the chicken was so tender, instructions and divine aroma. I cooked it on low 5.5 hours (I have a new crock pot). I was a little worried about 1/4 cup of liquid but the chicken made it's own juices and it was perfect. Thank you AmandaInOz"
"Delicious and so easy! I used 3 chicken breasts and apple juice for a wonderful meal - this smells wonderful all day long. We served this with recipe#216663. Thanks for sharing this great crockpot dish which we will be having again soon!"
