Autumn Chicken

Although my husband typically favors rich foods, he delights in eating this light sweet chicken. Apples and chicken are perfect partners.

    I Tried this recepie on my husband and he went back for seconds and then thirds. He loved it so much. It was also a hit with my young daughter as well.

    I don't know what I did wwrong, but this turned out very bland. It sounded good but had very little flavor.

    The chicken was so amazing. My family really enjoyed this. Perfect for Autumn when you can go and pick your apples with your family.
