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."
"This was awful! My husband is usually easy to please, but the apple/onion combination was terrible. The chicken had little flavor and the topping made it seem very dry. It just begged for some sort of sauce."
"This even looks pretty.Thanks!"
