My husband says this dish is sweet and a little bit sassy, just like me. I like to use Granny Smith apples for a bit of tartness. Winesaps are great for this dish, too. —Linda Cifuentes, Mahomet, Illinois

"Made exactly to recipe. Was really good but really similar in taste to a slow cooker maple-mustard chicken recipe we already serve often. Still, will hold onto this recipe for use in the fall when apples are in season, abundant and inexpensive."

"I made this recipe last night. I gave it a 4-star grade because I thought it was a little sweet for our taste. I used apples I had on hand, which were Delicious variety and this could have added to the sweet taste. I thought it was good otherwise and quick for a Tuesday night simple meal. I will make again and use a more tart Apple and cut back a little on the brown sugar."

"we both loved this! I was in a mood so I added some sliced onion and cayenne to the mix and deglazed the pan with a splash of white wine before adding the apple mix to the pan. the combo of sweet and hot was incredible and the spouse signaled 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. WOW!"
