Reviews for Apple 'n' Onion Chicken
"The topping turned out crispy....yum! Next time I think I'll cut back on the onion and bump up the apple."
"The apples and onions sauteeing together in a pan created a delicious smell, and tasted even better! The crisp cheese/breading topping was very tasty as well."
"this is the only baked chicken i will make!!! the chicken is super juicy and moist...even if you dont add the apple. The flavors blend wonderfully...Use real good swiss cheese, i like to add extra. its super easy...you wont be disappointed"
"I made this last night and the only thing i liked about it was the chicken. I don't see how the apples play a role in this dish. The chicken was juicy and the breadcrumb mix was awesome, but next time I'll leave out the apples."
"Savory blend of flavors. Very tasty."
