Reviews forAutumn Apple Chicken
"Really easy, and really good. I used honey crisp apples, and Sweet Baby Ray’s spicy and sweet barbecue sauce. I will definitely make this again, hubby loved it"
"We liked it, but Inthink I will take the advise of adding the apples later so they would be less mushy."
"Made as directed. It was edible, but not something I will be making again."
"Way too sweet."
"Recipe was very good, however the apples once cooked did not taste good at all. Any suggestions?"
