You only need a few ingredients to create this sweet and peppery chicken. The subtle flavor of apple makes this tender barbecue dish stand out from the rest. Darla Andrews - Farmers Branch, Texas

Easy to do taste great together will make it again

Quick and easy dinner! The applesauce compliments the bbq sauce and goes well with a potato side dish.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2013

I made this last night, and we really enjoyed this recipe! I used no-sugar applesauce (the non-chunky kind), and Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce. We don't like things very spicy, so I only added 1/4 tsp chili powder. I also browned it on the stove, and baked it in the oven at 350 for about 20-25 minutes, as some other reviewers did. I shredded the remaining chicken breasts last night in the sauce, and am making pulled bbq chicken sandwiches tonight. I'll be making this again!

A little too tangy for my taste.

MY REVIEW

I made this for the first time tonight , I didn't have chunky applesauce but it still turned out good using regular applesauce.

I think I will try to make it again sometime when I have the right kind of applesauce.
