I made a lot of changes to this and the resulting recipe was really tasty. Firstly I fried some onion in olive oil. When the onion was softened I added 2 minced garlic cloves and cooked that for about a minute while stirring. Then I added the chicken seasoned with salt and pepper cooked for 5 minutes then flipped the chicken and added two thinly sliced apples 1 tsp crushed dried rosemary 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and some apple juice in which to braise the chicken. I covered this and let it simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. When it was finished the apples and onion had softened together and I had a really nice thick sauce on top. This was great served over rice! With my modifications I'd give this recipe 5 stars but I would find it too bland and dry without the onions and apple juice. Thanks for the great starter recipe!

Excellent taste - exactly what I was looking for. I did not have pumpkin pie spice so I replaced with cinnamon allspice and nutmeg. Read More

This was a very good recipe however the spices were very overwhelming. I would cut back the pumpkin pie spice and tarragon by half the pepper to 1/4 tsp and the garlic salt to 1 tsp. Read More

I'd never had an apple/chicken combination before so without having anything to compare it to this wasn't bad. I used 4 chicken breasts and 2 apples. The apples ended up turning to mush will using baking apples next time. Also cut way down on the garlic salt as suggested. I added about 1 1/2 cups of apple juice to keep it from drying out. Not bad at all will try again for sure. Read More

I thought this was great. I didn't have tarragon but it was great without it (not sure what the taste difference would be with it but I'll probably try it with it next time). I did add garlic powder and the salt separately to limit the salt and it came out perfect. Read More

I was feeling a bit iffy about this one but was too intrigued not to try it. I'm so glad I did! The spices are strong but I loved it! I followed other's suggestions and toned down the garlic a little. This is a great recipe though with very interesting flavors! Read More

I should have read the reviews also before preparing it the first time - way too much garlic salt! The second time it got rave reviews from all the teens eating over - modified to 2 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tablespoon black pepper. Very simple and smells great!! Read More

Woweeeeeee that was a LOT of salt and pepper! I liked the way the chicken and apples looked together before I added anything else. I'll definitely try this again because I think it's a great idea but next time I'll just use a dash of everthing instead of the measurements given. Read More

This was OK. I liked the first few bites but then couldn't even think about it the next day. I think I'm just not a fan of tarragon and even though I cut back on the garlic salt it was still way too salty. I would put in 1/2 tbsp. next time. Read More
