Apple Swiss Chicken

MY MOTHER and I both like to experiment with recipes and created this one 43 years ago. It has come to the rescue for many impromptu occasions when I've had to adjust the serving sizes to unexpected numbers. My family really enjoys chicken, so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. -Lynne Glashoerster, Edmonton, Alberta
