    Good, easy dinner. Contains a LOT o f sugar, which I think can be replaced by using a sweeter apple. Otherwise, pretty good. Served with rice or sweet potatoes and a salad, even my five year old cleaned his plate!

    Good recipe, easy to make and perfect for picky children. Mine love apples so it was a win and we all love the little bit of sweetness.

    I substituted apple juice and regular vinegar for the broth and cider-vinegar and the whole family loved it!

    You can use Splenda instead of the sugar and still have the same great taste.MEB
