"Calvados is an apple brandy that is made only in the Normandy region of Spain. This simple but elegant dish can be made with Apple Jack or any apple brandy of your choice." — Kaye Lynn

Absolutely loved it! A good hot weather dish. I made it as written and served the apples and onions on the side with buttered rice. This will be a company meal for me.
I followed the recipe exactly and it was very disappointing.
This was good, but the sauce is veeerrrrryy rich. I loved the creativity of the recipe, as I have never had these ingredients together before, but I can't give 5 stars because my family didn't love it. It was a beautiful entree and to present it, I didn't add the chicken to the sauce, but spooned the thickened mixture over the chicken. If I could rate it 4.5 stars, I would. Thanks for sharing such an interesting recipe!
This is my husband's fav meal! It is on the menu at his fav restaurant, but it is called Chicken Normandy. I have been looking for this recipe forever! Thank you very much, we moved to Costa Rica and don't get back to the States much, now I can make it here!
Amazingly delicious. We had this over steamed rice, and spinach with lemon juice on the side. I didn't change a thing except I did not take the time to go buy apple brandy. In its place I used half cooking sherry and half apple cider. The sauce, apples, and mushrooms with the rice was the best part, in my opinion.
Incredible recipe. I preheated my oven so after cooking my chicken I could let it stay warm. Simple to prepare, very elegant and the sauce is bursting w/ flavour. I used a fine Calvados instead of the apple jack brand of apple brandy
Yep, my bad. Normandy is indeed in France. Sorry about that. I must have been geographically challenged the day I posted this recipe. AR didn't catch the mistake either. Thanks for the correction. Kaye
