I've found that apples and chicken go well together because they both have subtle flavors. I developed this recipe myself. I think it's not only a great-tasting main course, it also looks nice on the table.

"this recipe was just ok there was nothing special about it and just didn't taste that good all you can really taste is just warm bitter apples so you can imagine definitely would not make again"

"Very Delicious! I added celery and carrots for color and served with mashed potatoes since my husband is not a fan of pasta."
