Reviews for Apple-Mustard Chicken Tenders
"This is really good. I will be making this again. My mom who is a very picky eater would not even look up from her plate until she was done, then said 'Very Good!' It is sweet but not overly. I didn't have tenders so used legs and thighs cooked them through before finishing with the sauce and apples. Next time I will double the sauce and cook the apples til tender crunchy. I cooked the apples a little too long this time around. A great recipe!!"
"My husband and i liked it very much. To save on time i put the apple slices in the microwave and cooked till tender, it didn't take long, i then added it to the warmed brown sugar and mustard mixture, then added the cooked chicken. This recipe was not only good, i found it to be very easy."
"After reading other reviews I added onion, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious, my husband also gave it 5 stars. quick, easy and tasty what more could one ask for?"
"An absolutely delicious dish! I added onions and wow did that really make it complete. So simple yet tasty."
"This was really good and my whole family loved it. I didn't have any Granny Smith so I used red apples instead but that probably works better for my family. The combination of mustard, sugar, and apples was delicious with the chicken. Will definitely make this again."
"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!"
"This was really good. Even my husband Mr. Fuzzy liked it."
"Good stuff, way easy! Not something for company, but definitely a great dinner for the work week. Had it with TOH's Seasoned Couscous. Yum!!!"
