The first time I made this recipe, I liked it but felt that the chicken didn't absorb enough flavor. The next time, I cut the chicken breasts into strips and that helped. (The presentation isn't quite as nice as giving each person a whole piece of chicken, but it tastes better.)

This was just marginal okay. From the reviews I thought this was going to be better. No offense intended, but this was really blah.

Great texture and easy to make! A bit bland in spices...I just threw a bit more salt and pepper in!

This was a very quick recipe to prepare. The apple cream sauce was slightly sweet but nicely flavored. This was a nice recipe considering how quickly it can be made.
