    This was awesome! The only thing I did differently was use candied pecans and regular apple juice because that is what I had. A little time consuming with chopping and pounding chicken....but it will not stop me from making again. Entire family loved it!

    Loved the flavors!! Couldn't taste the brie, though. Will make this again!

    This recipe is wonderful! It is relatively simple to make and elegant. It only took a quarter of an apple to make the 1/2 cup of chopped apple, so we thinly sliced the remaining apple and added it to the sauce -it made a lovely garnish to go on top. The sauce was slightly acidic for our tastes, so we added a spoonful of honey to cut the acidity.

    My family's palate did not enjoy the combination of sweet and savory of this recipe! If I were to make this dish again, I would omit the rosemary and probably substitute chicken broth for the vinegar. In my opinion, a less acidic gravy would be a much better choice for this dish in order to appreciate the blend of brie, walnuts and apples.
