    Chicken was bland and dry. Apples were soggy.

    Wonderful! Based on other reviews I modified the cooking time and temp - 425 for 35 minutes, and I also added an onion as suggested. I also switched out fresh garlic and sage for dried as I didn't have any on hand. Super yummy and will definitely make this again!

    I am giving this five stars because the family loved it, and there are no leftovers! I didn't love love it - it was good, but I prefer some of the other recipes I make with chicken thighs, but it was nice for a change. It's a little more work for a week night supper than I usually do with all the apple peeling and chopping, but once the chicken is in the oven, the rest is pretty easy. I made a few minor modifications. I added a sliced onion as some others had suggested, and I left out the nutmeg because we generally find it too strong. I dusted the chicken thighs with a combination of flour, salt and pepper, and some garlic powder - I thought this would give them a nice crust, but it didn't, so I'd probably skip that next time. This is a good recipe if you want to use up some apples.

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