Nice twist

Nice, simple, recipe. My family loved it. The 2nd time I made it I added jamaican jerk seasoning to it too and used a cup of apple juice in place of water in my cooked rice to go with this dish. Family loved it.

This was an excellent meal, and my whole family loved this! I also added Rosemary and basil. Im 13, and this was my first time making dinner for the family, and they LOVED this meal! :

Wonderful flavor!

This is a different approach to chicken for my family. I am getting bored making the same old thing so I started looking for something new and this turned out wonderful. I cooked it exactly how the recipe says and added roasted potatoes and grilled squash and zucchini as sides. Very good recipe my whole family loved it!

Looking for something different to make as a chicken entree? This recipe is a nice change! I did use more butter than called for because I did not use a nonstick pan. Also, I added a little olive oil and sweet curry powder to the instant rice I served under the Juicy Apple Chicken - colorful, healthy, and delicious dish!
