Harvest Apple Chicken and Rice

This recipe is very easy and quick to throw together. I came across it on the Rice-a-Roni website. My 4 yr old couldn't stop eating it! "This is a pretty good dinner, Mom!" This can be made on the stove top or baked in the oven.

    We use almost the same recipe, except I make my own rice-a-roni, and I don't add the apples until close to the end of the cooking time b/c I don't like my apples to be just mush.
