  1. Pound the chicken breast halves flat and to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the flattened chicken breasts into several large pieces.
  2. Place the flour, salt, and pepper into a plastic bag, and drop the chicken pieces into the bag. Shake gently to coat the chicken thoroughly with flour mixture.
  3. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  4. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown the coated chicken pieces on each side until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Place the chicken pieces into the prepared baking dish, leaving the oil and butter in the skillet. Cook and stir the mushrooms, green onions, and garlic in the hot skillet until the mushrooms give up their juice and start to brown, about 10 minutes. Spread the cooked vegetables over the chicken pieces.
  5. Pour the apple juice, lemon juice, and sugar into the skillet, stir to dissolve the sugar, and bring the mixture to a boil. Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables, cover the baking dish with foil, and bake in the preheated oven until the sauce has reduced and the chicken has absorbed the sauce, about 1 hour.

This really is yummy chicken! We loved the addition of apple juice, its a great fall recipe. I served this with apple stuffing and steamed veggies.

As written, this dish is a little bland. I have made a similar recipe (with the very same name) for more than a decade. It originally was featured in "Winners- Best Of Bridge" cookbook. A few ingredients are missing in this posting that really will make this a fantastic dish: 1) Add 1/4 tsp of thyme to the flour for additional seasoning 2) Add 1/2 tsp of salt to the lemon juice, apple juice and sugar. DO NOT cook it before pouring over the chicken to bake- simply mix the 4 ingredients together, stir to dissolve and pour over the chicken. Much simpler! By adding salt and thyme, the dish really does become memorable.

This recipe yielded a very moist chicken, somewhat bland for our taste, but pretty good otherwise. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I would probably add more garlic and maybe a chopped jalapeno for some kick.

Delicious! I wasn't sure what to expect because all of the ingredients were so simple, but this really was Yummy chicken. I made some changes based on what our tastes are. I used extra mushrooms, green onions and lots more garlic just because I really like all those things and also doubled the amount of sauce because my chicken breasts were really large and I tend to like lots of sauce. Also used apple cider because that's what I had on hand. Turned out so delicously moist and yummy. I think I will make this next time we have company over.

This dish was tasty, I changed a little, but not much. When I sauteed the mushrooms and garlic I added an extra clove just to taste it up a bit and I also added a splash of Jack Daniels. About ten minutes before the end of the cook i sprinkled some fresh mozzarella cheese on it.

Excellent. In the flour mix I add some Montreal Chicken seasoning for a little more flavor. And I added about a quarter cup of wine in with the apple juice. Cooked it for less time and it was very moist. Served it with roasted potatoes and a ceasar salad.
