I made this last night with sweet potato fries. It pairs really well. I didn’t have apple juice or cider so I used apple butter and added some water. I also only made half the recipe but still used same amount of ingredients for sauce and seasonings.

I made this on a whim for something fast and easy. It couldn't have been any better, the flavors combined wonderfully and it was so quick I almost didn't have time to make my instant mashed potatoes!

I didn't have apple juice, but I had apple butter. So, I substituted 1/4 apple butter and 1/4 water for the apple juice. Worked great. Nice flavor, quick and easy.

This was delicious! The only thing I did a little different was at the end after thickening sauce and returning chicken to pan, I continued to keep it over the heat turning chicken often until the sauce almost "caramelized" to the chicken...about 5-7 more minutes. The chicken remained moist on the inside and wonderfully sticky and flavorful on the outside.

Chicken ala orange?

I know this might sound crazy but the first time I made this I didn't have apple juice so I used orange pop (fanta) and it was sooo good. I have also made it with apple juice since then but we actually prefer it with fanta instead. Very yummy.
