  • sounded good, but the oj was way too over powering, I think just skipping it would make a better dish and using some lemon and chicken broth instead - 12/14/14

  • I made this tonight with a few variations. I replaced 1/2 the OJ with chicken broth, used lots of black pepper and some additional garlic (powder). I served it with the quinoa. I will make this again, easy, unique and hearty. I really enjoyed it. - 11/18/08

    This sounds like it will be quite tasty. I've never had chicken cooked with apples before, so this will be a change for me. I can hardly wait to try it! - 11/13/08
