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

This recipe was very easy and tasty. We really enjoyed the sweet flavor of the apples with the chicken. Great recipe for a work day.

Made this for dinner and used a different cooking apple as I didn't have Granny Smith. Quick and easy dish but some liked the mustard flavor and others thought the stone ground mustard was overpowering.

I thought this would be great with pork chops instead of chicken and it was excellent! I wasn't sure if my picky husband would like it so I lightly sauced his serving. Next thing I knew he was adding more!!

This was really excellent. I cut chicken breasts into small chunks instead of using tenders, or you could even leave them whole. The entire family liked this. Definitely making it again!
