2 1/2 tablespoons
boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch strips
sweet apple - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons
cracked black pepper
pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoons
chopped dried tarragon
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!
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!!
Excellent taste - exactly what I was looking for. I did not have pumpkin pie spice, so I replaced with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
