i added cinnamon, smoked paprika, rosemary, and basil to the apple mixture, boiled the chicken and then cooked it for close to 20 minutes, it came out pretty tasty. The chicken was moist and tender. It was so good that I actually ate the leftovers for dinner the following night. - 4/10/07
I thought this was very good, and will definitely make it again! I did doctor it some with some rosemary and basil, but it didn't need too much. I used gala apples, and I think their extra sweetness really helped the flavor of the chicken. I also used half butter, half olive oil. - 4/6/07
